PHILOSOPHY & SCIENCE

Introducing Urania, Muse of Astronomy, or the Celestial one, and our Muse for Philosophy & Science. Her name derives from her great-grandfather, Uranus,  partner of earth, or Gaia, giving birth to the Titans, Cyclopes and Hekatoncheres, the hundred-handers.
 
Scientific reasoning can be traced back to the period in which Greek philosophers and thinkers pondered the origins of the universe...

TARAS' TIPS:

“A trip with Urania is the perfect opportunity
to explore the origins of scientific and philsophical thought. Travel to Athens and follow in the footsteps of Plato and Aristotle, reading their philosophical writings as you go.”

Aristotle remains one of the most important figures in the development of human thought. A student of Plato, Aristotle established his own school in Athens, known as the Lyceum, going on to tutor Alexander the Great. Explore Aristotle's Athens and uncover his contribution to the rise of Macedon.

384-322 BC

 “I honestly count the two summers I spent with Archaeomuse as some of my fondest memories in life and teaching. They were great guides as they cared about creating a meaningful experience for the students and teachers.”
