This seminar has two main aims: 1) to provide the occasion to read some terrific literature; and 2) to use that literature as a lens through which to explore questions of enduring significance to us as lawyers and as human beings. No special background is necessary. We will read some excellent Ancient Greek literature in translation — including selections from Sappho, Sophocles, Homer, Plato, Aeschylus, and Thucydides. See the preliminary syllabus [link in FN, below] for the tentative reading list. In addition to the reading assignments, there will be discussion assignments. You will submit or be ready to discuss your thoughts on a set of questions potentially illuminated by the reading.
