Ancient Greek

The German philosopher Martin Heidegger has said, the German and Greek are the languages, which work best for thinking. A.N. Whitehead added that the safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.

Great minds like Plato and Aristotle have thought, spoken and written in Greek, and none the least Greek philosophy has been dominant over long periods of the history of ideas. Likewise, political thinking, drama and math originate in Greece.

Ancient Greek is the language of the myths, the ancient logicians, philosophers and evangelists. We will begin by learning the alphabet as well as the basic grammar, reading texts and absolving writing exercises suited for our level from the very outset of the class.

If you have an interest in the field of languages, philosophy, religion or the natural sciences, Greek is the starting-point – the rest is footnotes.
