Greek Civilization: the Origins of Western Culture

CLST 181SK

The culture of the ancient Greeks from the Bronze Age to Alexander the Great—art, literature, history, philosophy, and religion—studied critically through the lens of various narratives that see the Greeks as the originators of western culture, such as the (supposed) invention of the alphabet, the beginnings of (western) ideas of the writing of history, the (so-called) perfection of classical architecture and sculpture, the origins of (western) drama, the origins of (western) rhetoric and philosophy. Taught at Duke Kunshan University.
