Greek Humanism

Study of Greek humanism from Homer to Socrates, with special emphasis on the interrelatedness and parallel development of form and content in early Greek thought. Concentrates on Greek rather than later humanism because Greeks were first to seek for and to find the measure of man in man himself rather than in transcendental entities. Emphasis on relationship between form and content because a thorough-going harmony between the two is especially charactersitic of early Greek poetry and philosophy. Attempts to show this parallelism by a close analysis of Greek poetry and philosophy are not frequent in Anglo-American scholarly literature.
