MA core course. The course gives an overiview of ancient philosophy from the Prosocratics to the Hellenistic schools. It does not require or build on any specific previous knowledge of ancient philosophy. We will read and discuss a selection of texts from different authors and periods, focusing on their argumentative methods and philosophical concepts, on the interpretative problems discussed in the contemporary literature and the major alternative solutions to those problems.
