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 in the
          course.  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, and ethical philosophy. Also
          listed  as  HONR300C.  Permission Required
          from the Honors College.

ANCS 351H Topics in Ancient Studies Aristotle and                 3 credits
          the Verbal Arts                                   

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          will  examine and differentiate the Verbal
          Arts  or  Controls  of  language: Grammar,
          Rhetoric,   and   Poetics  as  defined  in
          Aristotle's  "Rhetoric" and  "Poetics" and
          selections  from  Plato's  "Republic."  We
          shall   exemplify   the   verbal  arts  by
          studying  such  works as  Jonathan Swift's
          essay  "A Modest Proposal";  poems such as
          Shakespeare's Sonnet 71 and Robert Frost's
          "Stopping  by Woods..."; and speeches from
          ancient and modern times such as Pericles'
          "Funeral  Oration"  and  Lincoln's  Second
          Inaugural Address. We shall consider these
          works   from   practical,  aesthetic,  and
          theoretical  perspectives,  and  we  shall
          investigate   the   relationship   between
          author and audience, the political, social
          and formal significance of poetry, and the
          historical  and  cultural milieu  in which
          great   (and  not  so  great)  control  of
          language   is   created.  Also  listed  as
          HONR300B.  Permission  Required  from  the
          Honors College.
