MD 225 - Ancient Science


This course draws upon the cultural context, social history, and literary, documentary, and material evidence for ancient scientific theory and its associated historical contexts and cultural practices, in order to make a philosophical inquiry into the causes of the development of science primarily in the ancient Mediterranean but also in other well documented regions, the constitutive criteria and exceptional cases by which paradigms of ancient science were established and overturned, and the modes of literary discourse through which scientific knowledge was recorded and communicated.
