The Hellenic-Christian Philosophical Tradition: Four Lectures delivered at Boston University. An original discussion of the Legacy of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle in the Hellenic East from ancient to modern times, of Stoic elements in the Greek Church Fathers, and of the Concept of Philosophy in ancient Greece, Byzantium, and modern Greece.

   
by Constantine Cavarnos
With an Introduction by Professor Stephen D. Salamone

“The present essays were first delivered by Dr. Constantine Cavarnos as a series of lectures with the title The Hellenic Philosophical Continuum to a public audience at Boston University during the Spring Semester of 1986–87. They were sponsored by the Department of Classical Studies and its Program in Modern Greek Studies. These lectures were specifically composed by Dr. Cavarnos for our series. And they provide further evidence that modern Greek studies and classical studies are inherently related disciplines requiring, on occasion at least, a unified expression of their shared essence.
