September 2007. Our journey begins in the Greek colony of Miletus (in modern Turkey), where we will discover the importance of Asia to western civilization. Through our travels, you will become immersed in the world and ideas of several important figures of early western philosophy, including Thales of Miletus, Socrates of Athens, Aristotle and Heraclitus. Throughout the journey, our small group will enjoy daily discussions about the nature of reality and the self, and stimulating conversations about how one ought to live life and why.
During our journey, we will witness a history of conflict beginning with the Persian invasions of Greece in the Fifth Century BCE. We will explore the rich fusion of ideas, from the Trojan War through the flowering of critical thought in Ionia, the Persian wars and the conquests of Alexander, to the preservation of Greek thought by Islamic scholars whose work brought philosophy back to Europe and ignited the Renaissance.
