Module GREEK LAW AND POLITICAL THEORY

Module code: GC318
Credits: 5
Semester: 1
Department: ANCIENT CLASSICS
International: Yes
Coordinator: Dr William Desmond (ANCIENT CLASSICS)
Overview Overview
 

This module surveys Greek law in its historical contexts, from the early Archaic period to the Hellenistic. The module will focus on Classical Athens and the development of a body of law from its distinctively democratic system; individual topics will be approached primarily through the lens of selected Attic court speeches. The last part of the module broadens out into Greek jurisprudence: the philosophers who influentially attempted to relate positive laws and the idea of law to theories of justice, human nature, and cosmology.
