Please review more extensive materials at the teacher's Greek VI website.
An advanced course in Greek philosophical authors, including the Gorgias of Plato (entire). It may also be extended to include either some other Plato or selected writings of Aristotle.
This course meets once a week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
This is a fairly intensive reading course, and can require a considerable investment in time. I would estimate an hour to an hour and a half a day, though reading speeds may vary.
Greek V or permission of instructor
This course requires sufficient fluency in Attic Greek to read several Stephanus pages per day (the numbered pages by which Plato's dialogues are normally designated — in the case of the Gorgias, running from 447-527).
