CLAS 2520 - Classical Athens


Focuses on the people of the Greek city of Athens during an extraordinarily creative period of history–the century and a half from 480 B.C to 323 B.C–when the Athenians undertook the world’s first democratic experiment. Examines textual sources (literature, philosophy, history, speeches and public documents) and archaeological sources (architecture, sculpture, painting) for the light which they shed on the ancient Athenians’ political, intellectual, and artistic problems, concerns, and achievements. Explores how the Athenians dealt with those fundamental questions about life that face all thinking humans in a democracy.
