ContentUnsere Kultur und die wissenschaftliche Tradition haben eine lange Geschichte. In den vorangehenden Vorlesungsreihen wurden wichtige Themen wie Architektur, "Physik", Technik (Heureka I) und Mythologie/Religion (Heureka II) herausgegriffen, und es wurde versucht, die Verwurzelung unserer heutigen Gesellschaft in der Antike verstehbar zu machen. In der aktuellen Reihe sollen die Menschen der römischen Antike im Zentrum stehen: "Unsere Welt, die Welt des 21. Jahrhunderts, unterscheidet sich in zahllosen Aspekten von der des alten Rom, nicht zuletzt in unseren Einstellungen und Erwartungen." (R. Knapp)
Anhand von Lebensbildern von Menschen verschiedener sozialer Gruppen werden historische, soziokulturelle, wirtschaftliche, rechtliche und philosophische Aspekte herausgearbeitet und vorgestellt.
Die Vorlesungsreihe gliedert sich in sechs thematische Module (1-6). Am Ende steht eine Lernzielkontrolle:
Sitzung 1-2 (Modul 1): Kindheit und Bildung (Leben der Kinder, Unterrichtswesen)
Sitzung 3-4 (Modul 2): Karriere (Laufbahnen von Männern in Verwaltung und Militär)
