Summary Haverford College professor Aryeh Kosman delivers a course that will investigate the philosophical texts of Plato and Aristotle. Far from simply making a list of their ideas, however, in each lecture we will focus on thinking through the premises they put forth. In the end, our go will be to arrive at a solid understanding of the thought revolution provoked by the ideas of Plato and Aristotle and how their legacies continue to influence us to this very day.
