The course is intended to introduce to Western Ancient Philosophy, following the chronological order. The first part covers the following topics:
- Presocratic Philosophers
- The birth of Metaphysics
- The Sophists
- Socrates and the socratics
Studying Ancient Philosophers requires familiarity with their works: for this reason, a selection of texts, in English translation, will constitute the matter of presentation, reading and analysis guided by the teacher in class.
