We shall conduct a thorough study of central and substantial texts in classical philosophy, with close attention to the philosophical implications. Examples: Plato's Theaetetus and Sophist, or Timaeus and Philebus, or Laches, Charmides, and Lysis; Aristotle's On the Soul, or Eudemian Ethics, or some books of the Physics. It is not ruled out that the focus in some years would be on the pre-socratics, or on Socrates and the 5th century sophists, or on Hellenistic philosophy, or on Platonism after Plato.
