The Foundations of Our Republic

Greek philosophers active before and during the time of Socrates (generally 624-370BC) are known as the pre-Socratics. They inquired about the natural world, human civilization, ethics, and religion, seeking explanations based on natural principles rather than the actions of the gods. Though from some of these thinkers we have only fragments, their ideas offer insight into not just Greece’s Golden Age, but into the foundations of science and civilization itself.

Schedule:
12:00 – 1:00PM

Readings from:
Empedocles, Zeno, Parmenides, Protagoras, Gorgias, Anaxagoras, Heraclitus, Thales, Democritus, and Pythagoras
