Dive Into Some Deep Thinking.
Across the 4 weeks of the Philosophy in Greece Chapter, we have curated experiences designed to introduce you to the world of Greek philosophy and some of its greats. Our intention is that you leave Athens feeling like you have a better understanding of some of the key philosophical ideas that have shaped our world today.
This week covers the basics - you will learn about some of the most important ancient Greek philosophers, about their role in society and learn about the lasting impact their ideas have made on modern day culture.
Half Day tour of Athens
This week, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about Socrates and his ideas surrounding the individual. You can explore questions such as, “What is virtue?” and “What is justice?”, identifying what he believed is the ultimate driver of human behavior.
Greek gods excursion
Society was a very important part of any Ancient Greek’s life. This week, learn how the first principles of democracy were created, how Plato's philosophies helped structure political and economic thinking and how important sports was to the Greeks.

Philosophy and science share one common aim, looking for empirical truths. Philosophers such as Pythagoras and Aristotle developed concepts which span the breadth of just one field of study.
