Greek for Philosophers

“Greek for Philosophers” is a series of online and in-person activities designed to help scholars of ancient philosophy better engage with the Greek text.  Whether one has never studied ancient Greek or simply needs to brush up and exercise their skills, our courses and reading groups mix language learning with philosophical discussion of important texts.

Online Courses are taught live on Zoom by Dr. Chiara Blanco, Dr. Jurgen Gatt, and Dr. George Gazis; classes are recorded and links are provided to students for review. Classes meet once a week for 75 minutes, totaling 10 hours of instruction per term. They are recorded and links are provided to students for review.
