Advanced Conversational Greek: Xenophon’s Ἀπομνημονεύματα

Fri. 12pm Eastern

Course Description: Xenophon, the famous student of Socrates, dedicated several writings to the memory of his old teacher. These works show us important aspects of Socrates' life and teaching and enable us to look at the great philosopher from a different perspective, for we usually see him through the eyes of Plato. In this course, students will read and discuss the second book of Xenophon's Ἀπομνημονεύματα in the original language. Besides the cultural aspect, special attention will be paid to the acquisition of new vocabulary.
