The Birth of Western Philosophy The foundations of Western Philosophy rest squarely on the shoulders of Plato and Aristotle, teacher and pupil, who were among the first to formally express the basic drive of human beings to understand ourselves and the world we live in. In these penetrating lectures, Professor Aryeh Kosman examines the key works of these seminal thinkers, and explores the ways in which their commitment to reason as critical to our moral, political, and spiritual lives is as relevant today as it was in ancient Athens.
