Time to update this blog with a post. In three successive posts, I will explain the courses I am teaching this semester.
First, Aristotle’s Ethics in Greek, offered as both a Philosophy and a Greek course, for the first half of the semester looks carefully at Aristotle’s treatment of courage and moderation in book III, and then for the second half turns to passages taken from the rest of the Ethics, which suffice to give students a good grasp of the work as a whole and the main difficulties.
In preparing secondary materials for the students, as resources, I was astonished to find how many necessary works are available as pdf downloads. Most of these are big documents. So I prepared a Dropbox folder, invited all the students to share it, and I can add freely other materials or make sub-folders as the semester progresses. No doubt there is some technologically more savvy way of doing this, but I was pretty impressed by these simple expedients.
Here is the “reserve reading list” which is the class’s Dropbox folder so far:
