HPSCGA11 Science, Technology and Medicine in Antiquity
This course looks at the activities of the ancients in attempting to understand, predict and control the world around them. The main focus is the Greek ‘investigation concerning nature’ and its philosophical, religious and social context. We look at the study of the heavens, including theories of how the world came into being, medicine, mathematics and technology. We also look at how the Greeks thought of disciplines such as astrology and alchemy and how their activities related to magic. While the main focus is the Greeks, we also look at the Babylonian and Roman cultures, their medicine, technology and how they conceived of the world around them.
HPSCGA11 has a credit value of 30, with 300 study hours expected. Two pieces of coursework (4,000 words and 50% each)
HPSCGA11B has a credit value of 15, with 150 study hours expected. One piece of coursework (4,000 words)
