Archaic Greece

Course number : HS104   
« back to classes page
The classical period in Greece will always be remembered for its awe-inspiring innovations in political systems, art, literature, and philosophy. This course surveys the history of that period with an eye on the development of ideas. Democratic Athens cannot help but be at the center of the course, but we will also try to understand the larger historical context, taking into account the conditions that led to the domination of Greece by certain city-states and their subsequent decline. Attention will be paid to the testimony of the first written histories, Herodotus’ and Thucydides’ that not only chronicle the period lucidly but also create a new type of political discourse.
