Greek classics: Why its legacy remains relevant 2,500 years later?

2020 will be a very special year—2,500 years have elapsed since the Greeks resisted the second, and last, Persian invasion. The alliance of the Greek polis put the seeds that allowed Plato, Aristotle, and many other great thinkers, to create and develop a unique worldview based on the notion of the koinôn (κοινόν). Their new way of thinking about the world has played a seminal role in the shaping of today’s societies. The aim of this Conference is to consider the example of Ancient Greek philosophers and rethink the world, 2,500 years later. We believe that Greek Classics are the mirror where we should look at—they must be the path of light for our free societies. Thus, as inheritors of such a great legacy and as owners of all future science, we propose to reflect on this conference around the following thematic axis: “Greek Classics: Why Its Legacy Remains Relevant 2,500 years later?”
