1.1530 Ancient Greek Dress and Costume.
This paper examines Greece as a source of beauty, grace, and culture. Many of the ideals that we hold politically, religiously, and philosophically have at least part of their roots in ancient Greece. In accordance with the value of beauty in form and the idealizing of character (depicted by the Greek Gods and Goddesses), Greece has been the home of many beautiful creations in dress as well as in the other arts. The climate of Greece had very much to do with the dress and costume of Ancient Greece. 5 pgs. 7 f/c. 7b.

2.1554 An Evaluation of a Statuette of Aphrodite.
The nude Aphrodite is a key figure in late Hellenistic sculpture. The primary reason this is such a key figure is that is signified the shift in attitudes toward women and the overall respect they garnered in Greek culture during that period. What makes this more significant is that the general function of the Hellenistic period in general was public display, not art for art's sake. Public display usually had an overt religious or political connotation, so the fact that nude Aphrodites starting appearing during the late Hellenistic period carries that much more significance. 3 pgs. 0 f/c. 0b.

3.1821 The Essence of the Human Spirit.
The purpose of this paper will be to discuss three themes that encapsulate what reasonably can be considered the essence of the `human spirit'. These topics, which first developed in parallel with the emergence of ancient Greek society, have played a determining role in shaping the development of subsequent western civilization and, indeed, continue to have an important influence on contemporary society. Although conceptually distinct, these themes are, as we shall see, closely related to each other. They are, (a) the adoption of reason and a scientific attitude to explain the natural world and the individuals it contains; (b) the view that humans can impose order on the world around them; (c) the emergence of the ideals of democracy and freedom. 5 pgs. 1 f/c. 4b.
