(kriah mudrechet) are offered on
These meetings are registered as a formal part of the philosophy department curriculum
although open to students outside of the department as well.
- philosophical and literary texts in Greek/Latin
- or philosophical and literary texts of classical origin in translation.
Depending on the number of applicants, informal Reading Groups may also be organised for reading Greek and Latin texts or texts in translation.
Tutorial and Reading Group meetings will be held at hours and on texts to be agreed between myself and the pupils. Those applying to study texts in Greek or Latin must have had at least one year of Greek or Latin (and preferably two years) behind them. Those applying to study classical texts in translation need have done at least one course on classical heritage or in Greek philosophy. Texts in Latin need not necessarily be ancient - e.g., Latin works of Spinoza, Descartes or Aquinas are also offered. It is possible also to read literary or historical texts in Greek and Latin, but preference is given to philosophical texts.
While auditing is not discouraged, those wishing to take a tutorial for a credit are advised to register with the secretary of the Philosophy Dept. or the secretary of the General History Dept. requesting to do 'kriah mudrechet' with me, but applicants are requested first to consult with me in relation to the availability of the tutorial in that semestre.
