The course introduces Greek philosophical terminology with respect to the basic concepts and thought patterns of the Western philosophical tradition. We will focus on the grammatical structure of Greek in view of its intentional use by ancient authors.

The introduction to “philosophical Greek” will be based on a number of concrete examples to show the variety of ways in which the relationship between language and thought is manifested in ancient texts.
