Seminarium Philosophicum

Introduction to Cicero’s Philosophy

During the course, students will read passages from Cicero’s De Officiis, De Re Publica, De Legibus, De Divinatione, De Fato, and Academica.

Each class will be two hours long, with a short break after the first hour. The first hour will consist of exercises, and the second will involve reading and discussing Latin texts. During the first hour, students will practise speaking in Latin through interactive teaching about the background to the texts (for example, Cicero’s life and thought, ways of talking about soul and body, and some discussion of basic philosophical concepts). In the second hour, students will be helped to read, understand and interpret the chosen texts.

The course will be available in both of our summer sessions:
18th-27th July
28th July-6th August.

If there is sufficient demand, the course will be taught in both time-slots (UK time):
5-7pm
10pm-midnight.

Price: £320
