Module 1: Early Greeks, Socrates, Plato, & Aristotle

In this module, you will be expected to read Plato’s Euthyphro. While they are referred to as “Plato’s” that can be something of a misnomer. While Plato did in fact write them, they are actually depictions of dialogues between Plato’s mentor and predecessor Socrates. The exact nature of these dialogues is still sometimes debated. Are they a transcript of actual conversations? Are they the preservation of Socrates’ own writings by Plato? Are they a creation or re-creation by Plato himself? The answers differ.

For our purposes, we will be reading this dialogue as (in one way or another) a representation of Socrates’ thoughts and ideas. Since Plato represents the beginning of a new era in Greek Philosophy, we will also be using it to understand the philosophical context into which Plato is writing. This is why we will make some reference to pre-Socratic voices in Greek Philosophy and the Sophists before turning our attention onto Socrates directly.

With the background of Socrates firmly in place, we then turn our attention to Plato and Aristotle with readings from Plato’s Republic. These are part of Plato’s own philosophical system and reflect his own ideas and development. In Plato and Aristotle we have two of the most significant and influential philosophers. In many ways much of what we will be studying for the rest of the term will be some form of adopting or rejecting some aspect of their thought. Here we will be trying to get as thorough an understanding of Plato in order to recognize the ways that Aristotle (a student of Plato) both continues and diverges from the teachings of his tutor.
