Instructor: Professor Haselberger
M 4-6

Course Description

Theoretical and practical aspects of Greek and Roman city planning and urban design, from Hippodamos, 5th c. BC, to the early centuries of the Roman Empire. Our material will encompass the evidence of both built cities and textual sources, such as Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle, Polybius, Cicero, Vitruvius. 'City', defined as community of its citizens, with the goal of their well-being: how does this find its expression in Classical theories and practices?
