About this course

What is the soul? Is the soul more divine than the material world? How is the soul related to God? This course explores the ways in which the earliest Greek philosophers, theologians, poets, and religious traditions sought to answer these and other questions about the rational principle of life within us. We will turn specifically to the writings of Homer, the Early Materialists, Heraclitus, Socrates, and Plotinus. We will also explore the Orphist religious tradition that set the background for these works.
