"We are all Greeks." (Shelley, Hellas) The myths of ancient Greece have long fascinated and perplexed scholars and intellectuals. In this module we shall examine some of those myths, and their influence on the Western intellectual tradition. The module aims to familiarise students with a number of theories to which they have given rise. Students will be encouraged to examine and critique these interpretations. "We are much less Greek than we believe." (Foucault, Discipline and Punish).
