ANCS 350H Topics in Ancient Studies Science                       3 credits
          Mathematics and Technology in the Ancient         
          World                                             

(PermReq) Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          presents    the   major   scientific   and
          mathematical  advances made by the ancient
          Greeks  and Romans. Those advances in such
          diverse  fields  as medicine  and biology,
          mathematics  and  geometry,  astronomy and
          geography,   became   the  foundations  of
          intellectual  thought  in  both  the Latin
          west  and  the  Arabic  east.  Texts  will
          include translations of treatises by major
          scientists  of the Greek  and Roman World.
          The  archaeological  evidence  for ancient
          technology  will also be included. We will
          study  these discoveries  and developments
          within   the  historical  context  of  the
          ancient world. That background- political,
          social   and   economic   -  will  provide
          insights  into  developments  in political
          science,   anthropology,  psychology,  and
          ethical   philosophy.   We   will  examine
          traditional   methods  of  education,  the
          establishment  of  intellectual  "schools"
          such  as Plato's Academy and of scientific
          institutions  such  as the  Museum and the
          Great  Library at Alexandria. We will also
          consider   those  cultural  and  religious
          factors    that    promoted   or   impeded
          developments  in  science. Also  listed as
          HONR 300D.
