What philosophical analysis can be made of other writings of ancient Greek literature, e.g. those of the Greek epics (Homer), tragedy (Aeschylus, Sophocles, or Euripides), comedy (Aristophanes), or history (Herodotus, Thucydides)? Summarize the thought of one of the other Presocratic philosophers (e.g. Xenophanes, Parmenides, Zeno of Elea, Melissus of Samos, Empedocles, Anaxagoras, Leucippus, Democritus, Diogenes of Apollonia, the Pythagoreans, or the Stoics). Discuss a famous theme from Plato (e.g. the allegory of the cave, the theory of love in Plato’s Symposium, or the death of Socrates). Summarize or discuss a position from ancient philosophy of nature which we didn’t cover (e.g., Stoic physics or Epicurean physics). Summarize or discuss a position from medieval philosophical anthropology, ethics, or political philosophy we didn’t cover (e.g., Augustine’s position on free will, Aquinas’ natural law theory, Ficino’s position on the immortality of the soul). Summarize or discuss how a contemporary philosopher appropriates or develops ancient or medieval thought (e.g., Martha Nussbaum on Greek tragedy, Pierre Hadot on the Stoicism of Marcus Aurelius, Rosalind Hursthouse on Virtue Ethics, Alasdair MacIntyre on ancient and medieval ethics). Discuss a connection between a theme in ancient or medieval philosophy and a theme in modern thought (e.g., Plato’s position on the mathematical foundations of nature and the development of modern physics in Galileo and onwards, Epictetus’ position on Stoic ethics and recent work applying it to psychotherapy). The post Discuss Plato’s position on the mathematical foundations of nature and the development of modern physics in Galileo and onwards. appeared first on Essay Quoll.
