 The Pre-Socratics

Autumn Term 2017, Tuesdays, 15:00 – 17:00, ten weeks starting 3rd October

Course Tutor: Anja Steinbauer.

Philosophy is two and a half thousand years old, no longer a spring chicken and, as we all like to do when we get older, it is time for it to look back to its youthful beginnings. But how can we identify a “beginning” at all? Philosophising has become so much part of our culture it would seem to have always existed. In this course we will study the backgrounds, ideas and assumptions of the earliest philosophers in the Greek tradition, and discuss what made them distinctive and philosophically relevant.
