POLISCI 238R: Ancient Greek Rationality, Public and Private (CLASSICS 395, PHIL 338R, POLISCI 438R)

In this seminar, we'll consider ancient Greek views about and theories of practical rationality and compare and contrast them with some modern theories, especially theories of instrumental rationality. We'll consider both philosophic authors, especially Plato and Aristotle, but also Aeschylus, Herodotus, Solon, and Thucydides.
