LBRL 121 - The Western Tradition I: The Ancient World


This course studies the Near Eastern and Mediterranean origins of Western culture through an examination of Mesopotamian, Hebrew, Greek, and Roman sources. It considers ancient world views and conceptions of what it meant to be human. Sections explore such varied topics as debates about knowledge and ideas about justice, gender, mortality and immortality; they treat the organization of ancient societies and their production of visual arts and architecture. Readings often include selections from the Epic of Gilgamesh and the Hebrew Bible, Greek plays, the Iliad or Odyssey, Plato, and Virgil’s Aeneid.
