The Problem of Knowledge as Reflected in Sophoclean Drama

Project has two parts; a program of reading and the preparation of two essays on the subject of "The Problem of Knowledge as Reflected in Sophoclean Drama." The reading will center around the theories of perception and knowledge in early Greek Philosophy, with special emphasis on the empiricist tradition (Anaxagoras and Democritus) and the rationalist tradition (Parmenides and Plato). Writing will consist of essays on the Ajax and Trachiniai of Sophocles. A somewhat longer essay is also planned, tentatively entitled; "Action and Revelation in the Trachiniai."
