Ancient Greek Philosophy: An Introduction

In this discussion, we will look at the history and influence of ancient Greek philosophy. Beginning with the pre-Socratics, we will explore the questions and debates that animated ancient Greek philosophical life. We will engage with the work of Plato, Aristotle, Xenophone and more, looking for the common threads of influence. We will also discuss how and why ancient Greek philosophy has continued to be at the center of contemporary philosophy, scientific, and political inquiry.

Each lecture is 60-minutes long and hosted on Zoom by NHM's own resident scholar, Dr. Katie Kelaidis. She is a historian and is passionate about how Greek history and culture are relevant so you can expect a lively discussion and exchange.
