Reading Greek Prose: Plato's Crito
GRK 201
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

We will read the Crito, one of Plato's dialogues that together with his Apology and the Phaedo constitute some of our major sources about Socrates' role in Athens, his trial and conviction to death, and his own approach to death and the good life. In the Crito Socrates addresses the essence of law, the limits of tolerance, and the very notion of civil disobedience. Throughout the semester our goal will be to explore these questions while working closely with the original text to increase steadily the facility and speed with which you read and enjoy Greek. We will also read a selection of scholarly articles.
