Why do the ancient Greeks occupy such a prominent place in conceptions of Western culture and identity? The Greeks are a source of much that we esteem: democracy, philosophy, tragedy, epic and lyric poetry, history-writing, ideals of athletic competition, aesthetic sensibilities, and more. Spanning roughly 1,000 years, the lectures cover the Late Bronze Age (1500 B.C.E.) to the time of Alexander the Great in the late 4th century (400 B.C.E.). Greek civilization experienced a period of magnificent achievement, and then plunged into darkness, from which blossomed a second flowering of that civilization, giving us the foundation of our own.
