    "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).
