Aristotle. "The Athenian Constitution By Aristotle." The Athenian Constitution By Aristotle.

The Internet Classics Archive, n.d. Web. 09 Dec. 2013.

<http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/athenian_const.mb.txt>.

I incorporated this document into my website by including an excerpt of it on my

“Political/Legal Process” page. It provided both historical context and a visualization of

the mindset of an Athenian politician.

Plato. "The Internet Classics Archive | Apology by Plato." The Internet Classics Archive |

Apology by Plato. N.p., n.d. Web. 08 Dec. 2013.

<http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/apology.html>.

This document shows Socrates’ defense at his own trial where he has been charged with,

essentially, corrupting his students by introducing new deities and not acknowledging

those formally recognized by Greeks. This provided an interesting contrast between the

progressive and democratic Greece and its traditional and seemingly forced belief system.

I incorporated it into my site by referencing and quoting it on my “Human Relations”

page.

Plato. "The Internet Classics Archive | The Symposium by Plato." The Internet Classics Archive |

Apology by Plato. N.p., n.d. Web. 08 Dec. 2013.

<http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/symposium.html>.

This document provided me with some interesting insight as to how a Greek philosopher

thought and how he would view humanity. Though the writing style is narrative, I was

still able to derive some truth from it. I incorporated this piece by referencing

Aristophanes’ speech on my “Human Relations” page.

Plutarch. "Plutarch's Lives, Volume I (of 4)." The Project Gutenberg EBook, Plutarch's

Lives, Volume I (of 4), by Plutarch, Et Al, Translated by Aubrey Stewart and

George Long. Project Gutenberg, 12 Nov. 2004. Web. 6 Feb. 2014.

<http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14033/14033-h/14033-h.htm>.

This was a rather fascinating EBook. I incorporated it into my website by putting a quote

from the text at the top of my “Political/Legal Process” page. It helped me piece together

how the democratic system started and obtain the point of view of an Athenian historian

Thucydides. "THE HISTORY OF THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR” Project Gutenberg's The

History of the Peloponnesian War, by Thucydides. Project Gutenberg, 12 Nov. 2004.

Web. 6 Feb. 2014.

<http://www.gutenberg.org/files/7142/7142-h/7142-h.htm>.

This source helped me understand how democracy played a role in war and how

Athenians viewed the Peloponnesian war. Thucydides was a general and a historian

which made his work credible. I incorporated this into my site by including excerpts on

my “Peloponnesian War” page.

/A_Critique_and_Synthesis_of_Commentaries_and_Interpretations_of_Aristoph

anes_Birds_>.

I used this source to attempt to gain a better understanding of who Aristophanes was and

what some of his political satire meant in context to the Athenian democratic system.

This is a very in-depth analysis and I couldn’t fit it in to my project completely, however

many of my ideas that I wrote on Aristophanes derived from the interpretations in this

document.

I used this source to try to synthesize a fairly long multi-volume text. I also wanted to try

to make it easier for others to understand. I incorporated this video on my “Peloponnesian

War” page.

(1994): 22. Advanced Placement Source. Web. 25 Nov. 2013.

This document gives me insight on how Demosthenes, a Greek statesmen and prominent

political figure, perceived the political world of Athens and his views on democracy. It

particularly showcases the nature of the judicial system. I incorporated this into my site

by placing an excerpt of it on my “Political/Legal Process” page.
