Cultural and Educational Continuity of Greece From Antiquity to the Present: A discussion of a very enlightening lecture which was delivered at the Institute for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies by the distinguished Argentine philosopher, philologist, and Hellenist Dr. Saúl A. Tovar.
By Constantine Cavarnos With a Foreword by Professor Saúl A. Tovar
“The objective of the lecture was to prove that since the Academy of Plato and the Lyceum of Aristotle there has been no interruption up until today in the continuity of the Greek Paideia, contrary to what many Hellenists and Medievalists mistakenly have believed. The inadmissible result of their belief has been that in spite of a copious bibliographic compendium of sources, there still is an insistence not to recognize this historic and palpable fact. The truth is very different. Hellenic education has continued has continued without interruption in harmony with its spiritual ideals up until today, in spite of the many historic vicissitudes of the Greek people, as they have been a millennial nation.” —“Foreword”
