AP - Philosophy


This unit introduces the student to Greek philosophy from the Pre-Socratics, through Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, Epicureans, Neo-Platonists, Cynics and Sceptics, down to prominent Coptic philosophers such as Clement of Alexandria, John Philoponus, Isidore of Pelusium, and Pseudo-Dionysius. It explores the interaction between Greek philosophy and antique Christian thought generally, through common themes such as the nature of God, the soul, the good life, truth, and metaphysics. Students will also be introduced to the nature of philosophical inquiry, to several key texts, and to methods of argumentation. They will gain a sense of the history of ideas.   View Timetable
