The Museum of Cycladic Art invites you to this year’s first Philosophy webinar entitled Greekness: From European Enlightenment to Romanticism. The webinar focuses on philosophical thought in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in the West and in Greece and is held on the occasion of our current temporary exhibition entitled Archaeology and Philhellenism. The Thanassis and Marina Martinos Collection.
This Lecture Series examines the broader philosophical context in which the Greek War of Independence of 1821 took place. It also explores the relationship between European and Modern Greek Enlightenment and the connection between the Enlightenment and the Romantic movement.
The lectures will focus on philosophers such as Voltaire (1694-1778), John Locke (1632-1704), Charles Montesquieu (1689-1755), Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), and Immanuel Kant (1724-1804).
During three consecutive meetings we will explore the reception of the concepts of Freedom and Equality (29 March), Reason and Imagination (5 April), and the Self and the Collective (12 April).
About the webinar:
Please, join us to watch three live broadcasts in which Nikos Erinakis and Maria Mourtou-Paradeisopoulou describe in a current and clear manner the basic principles of the two most important philosophical currents of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and how they influenced the struggle for Greek independence in 1821.
You can participate in the open dialogue that will take place towards the end of each meeting by sending your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
