“The ancient Greek spirit can help the people today defend our endangered culture,” said Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Monday in his address at an international conference titled “Ancient Greece and the Modern World.”
“The ancient Greek spirit essentially created the modern western culture, because it was the ancient Greek spirit that gradually turned information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom, therefore created science. It freed man from the legend, freed from the dogmas and learned the relativity and the questioning of any scientific discovery. In other words, it opened the way for contemporary creation,” said the President.
“This invaluable contribution of the ancient Greek spirit can help people today defend our culture at risk,” Pavlopoulos stressed.
