It might come as somewhat of a surprise to modern readers (it did to me) that the Odyssey was almost fundamentally an expression of the need to have a skeptical attitude to be a good, and especially heroic, person. The Odyssey is a must-read for all fully-formed humans, and my paper will I hope be of particular interest to the philosophically-minded. Homer practically invented skepticism and was likely the main reason that ancient Greece was the birthplace of reason and philosophy. And, as I greatly identify with Odysseus "the Wanderer", I enjoyed this assignment immeasurably.

 

Here is a nice pic of Odysseus and the Sirens:
