Fulfills the L&S breadth requirement in Arts and Literature or Philosophy and Values.
The prerequisite is one full year of coursework in beginning ancient Greek, or an equivalent intensive course.
The primary goal of this course is to improve your knowledge of Greek. We will read Lysias I, On the Murder of Eratosthenes, and Plato's Apology. If time permits, we will also translate some texts at sight. Although our main focus will be on grammar review, we will always approach the texts we read as intrinsically valuable and interesting works. We will examine how Lysias uses argument and style to produce persuasion, and we will think about the relation between persuasion and philosophical argument in Plato.
