Archelogos Project

Description: The Archelogos Project is creating a database of philosophical arguments extracted from the texts of the Ancient Greek philosophers. Initially the Project will present the works of Plato and Aristotle but will expand to include the works of the Pre-Socratic and Hellenistic philosophers. The system uses hypertext to connect the arguments, sub-arguments and alternative interpretations of the texts, and additionally gives guided access to the relevant texts held in the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae. Critical content for the Project is contributed by international experts in the fields covered. Features of the database are being designed for use as a teaching tool; it will include an Exercise Module, in which the student is directed in Argument Analyses, for example.

Requirements: Apple Macintosh running System 7.0 or better with a CD-ROM drive.
