PHL 217 - Ancient and Medieval Philosophy


An exploration of the central debates, texts, and developments in philosophy in the ancient (Greco-Roman) and medieval periods, drawing on Hellenistic texts as well as some religious thought from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Issues to be considered are: 1) What is the nature of the world and its relation to divinity (metaphysics/philosophical theology)? 2) What is the best form of political life for humanity? and 3) What should human beings seek and do, in order to live a fully flourishing life? Satisfies the Values and Ethical Reasoning General Education requirement.
