An online five week course examining the thoughts of the ancient thinkers: the Presocratics, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Aurelius, for their impact on the formation of Western thought. We compare and contrast their views of reality focusing particularly on concepts such as teleology, being, the soul, virtue, the social and creative nature of persons, and how we ought to live. We explore theories of human nature, human behaviour and instincts, ethics, personality, and identity.
