The unit will explore the very beginnings of the Western philosophical tradition in the work of Socrates as described by Plato in about 400BCE. Plato raises issues about the nature of ultimate reality and its importance for our moral and social lives. He describes how Socrates was put to death for teaching philosophical ideas that challenged the authority of tradition. For his part, Nietzsche, in the late 19th century, challenged the hegemony of the philosophical tradition that Plato inaugurated and asked us to accept the stresses of human life without recourse to metaphysical consolations.
