Synopsis

Born in Athens, Greece, acclaimed  Yale-educated philosopher Samuel Loncar helps you discover how ancient Greek philosophy—or “love of wisdom”—forms powerful bridges between East and West as well as past and present.   In this provocative audio course, you will explore Greek philosophy in its historical context, in which  philosophy was not just an intellectual pursuit but a way of life integrating the mind, body, and cosmos. By delving into the works of Greece’s greatest thinkers, including Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, you’ll gain powerful tools for self-discovery.  Greek philosophy is the foundation of Western civilization, but it is rooted in the wisdom of African and Near Eastern philosophy. These 15 illuminating lectures explore how ancient Greek philosophers saw themselves as members of a multicultural tradition and project that could heal political strife and help humans find peace. As you journey through the diverse thoughts and ideas that form the basis of Western civilization, you’ll find answers to some of culture’s most significant questions: What is the connection between Eastern and Western philosophical traditions? Do we have souls, and should we be concerned about them? What can philosophy offer me in my daily pursuit of peace and contentment? At the conclusion of this course, you will have an excellent overview of the essential foundations of Western philosophy and understand how these ancient ways can help you live well in the modern world.This course is part of the Learn25 collection.
