Greek Language and Culture: Their Vitality and Importance Today

   
By Cedric H. Whitman
Edited with Prefaces, Notes, and Biographical Sketch By Constantine Cavarnos

“Throughout Greek history, from Antiquity to the present, there has been an essential relationship between the Greek language and the rest of Greek culture. Greek culture has always been organic in nature. Professor Whitman stresses this fact. According to him, the survival of the Greek language as a living language to this day is related to the survival of the Greek people as Greeks, and this to the character of their culture. The latter is characterized, he says, by continuity, tenacity to the meaningful Greek tradition, conservatism, the heroic ideal and faith, and the rejection of materialism.”
