Beauty, Harmony, and Proportion

Greece - Summer 2002


Professor Steve DeCaroli (Philosophy and Religion) and I taught a course titled "Beauty, Harmony, and Proportion - Ideals in Classical Greece." We looked for (and found) examples of these ideals in Athens, on the island of Poros, on the Peloponnesian Peninsula, in Olympia, and in Delphi among other locations. Fourteen of Goucher's brightest and most fun-loving students worked and played hard for sixteen days. Here are a few pictures of the trip.
