Ancient Greece has been the catalyst and template for much of Western Civilization in terms of art(specifically plays, playwrights performance and theatre staging) and philosophy, which was deeply fused together. This course will uncover the ways in which philosophy informed Greek ideals and the role it played both in political systems and in literary art with plays, playwrights, and performance. Therefore, sections will focus on both of those disciplines and how they are innately intertwined.
The philosophy of crime and punishment will be explored through a deep examination of the political democracy and punishment. We will examine how Greece's model of crime and punishment changed with time to what is today.
Students will have the unique opportunity to learn in a module based learning curriculum the theories from both perspectives and then gain a once in a lifetime chance to see in person in this embedded course how these woven fabrics of both art and philosophy are a significant driving force for our Western world by seeing first hand these ancient sites and ruins.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel overnight accommodations.
