The course will survey a broad range of major philosophical ideas and theories, starting with their mythical (or mythopoetic) background in Homer and Hesiod, working through the pre-Socratics, the sophistic movement, Plato, Aristotle, Hellenistic philosophy, Augustine, and Aquinas. We will be concerned throughout with the theme of how human beings conceive of themselves and their world, and how philosophical conceptions are related to mythical, religious, and scientific ones.
