Epicurus And His Competitors
Epicurean Philosophy In Relation to Competitors¶
The purpose of this class is to familiarize the student with how Epicurean philosophy compares in general terms to other modern and ancient philosophies, primarily by charting how each of several major schools (Stoics, Platonists, Aristotelians?) gave differing answers to key questions.
When this course is complete, the student will know both the major doctrines of Epicurean philosophy and a general idea of how those doctrines compare with ancient and modern alternative theories.
