Athenian Revolutionaries


Description

This course studies the personalities who revolutionised Athenian politics, society and culture in the late fifth century BC, through close reading of contemporary historical, philosophical and dramatic texts. Discusses figures such as Alcibiades and Critias who provoked political crises in 411 and 404, the underlying moral revolution linked to the Sophists and Socrates, and its expression in Euripides' and Aristophanes' radically new theatre.
