Chapter 2 :The GREEKS
In this chapter we shall cover a great deal of
material. The general
overview is given below in an outline.
There are ten sections. They
will be broken up into a number of mini lectures.
There will be discussion questions based on the more important
issues of philosophical interest. There
is a great deal of material available at your library and on the Internet.
References will be offered. There will be a large number of links
to sites on the Internet. You are invited to visit them.
Please keep in mind that the only materials that are on internet
sites that you will need to read will be clearly marked with something
like, READ or even "You must read..... click
