PHI 301: INTRODUCTION TO ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY
I would very much appreciate that you let me know whenever a link is not working. Let me know also if you find any typo in the course notes/assignments etc. Comments on content are welcome as well.
PLEASE DOWNLOAD AND READ THE COMPLETE SYLLABUS. It contains INDISPENSABLE INFORMATION such as course description, schedule as well as exam and grading policies. It is available in pdf format: Syllabus(Chapter 1)
Note that the schedule is subject to changes. It is probably too ambitious as it is. The present schedule should still provide you with a good idea of what we will try to cover during the course.
IMPORTANT CHANGE IN SYLLABUS: FROM NOW ON, THE SURPRISE QUIZZES WILL BE STRICTLY BASED ON THE STUDY QUESTIONS. YOU ARE NOW ALLOWED TO USE YOUR PERSONAL NOTES ON THE READINGS TO ANSWER THE SURPRISE QUIZZES IN CLASS (Posted 2/28/2007).
IMPORTANT CHANGE IN SYLLABUS: There is an optional additional assignment for those who want another oportunity to raise their grades: See link for "optional paper" under the "papers and exams" section (Posted 4/19/2007).
