SP19-WPP-59 CLASSICAL GREECE

Tuesdays: 1-2 pm
5 Sessions: Mar. 19-Apr. 16
WESTMINSTER POINT PLEASANT
David Miano

The classical period in Greece will always be remembered for its awe-inspiring innovations in political systems, art, literature, and philosophy. This course surveys the history of that period with an eye on the development of ideas. Democratic Athens will be at the center of the course, but we will also try to understand the larger historical context, taking into account the conditions that led to the domination of Greece by certain city-states and their subsequent decline. Attention will be paid to the testimony of the first written histories, Herodotus and Thucydides, which not only chronicle the period lucidly but also create a new type of political discourse.
Silver Member: $85; Gold Member: $76.50.
