“The present-day Greek is not reborn, as
is commonly believed; he is born. He is
the child of a famous and proud father,
possesses the same features and
constitution, the same functions, almost
the same intellectual powers; in short, he
is the living image of the father, a lion’s
cub. To grow and become like his father,
he must have the same upbringing, the
same conditions, those at least which are
in accord with the spirit of the present
century.”
Course Objective

Ancient Greek civilization and culture have been
studied extensively in the west since Greece has
always been considered the crucible of Western
Civilization. However, many overlook the
significance of modern Greece and its
contemporary political and cultural role.

Who are the modern Greeks? How similar or
different are to the rest of the Europeans in
culture, ideas, politics and history.
Course Objective



Since 1981 Greece is a member of European
Union.
How does the Greek identity relate to the
European from a historical, cultural and sociopolitical perspective and how does it function in
the family of European countries?
Will too much diversity in the European Union
eventually lead to a loss of identity for Greece
and the other member states?
Course Objective

provide answers to these questions by examining
certain aspects of Greek history, politics, and
ideology in addition to culture, literature and the
arts.

The class is taught in English and there are no
