Emerging from A charred
& illiterate Dark Age,

the Ancient Greeks spent
5 centuries  striving to
be wise AND  daring
to be free


& still today can be seen

the cities, the temples

—the stones—which they

raised in their pursuit

of immortal fame.

the grandeur of THEIR ruins & THE BEAUTY OF THEIR ART ARE exceeded ONLY BY THE audacity

OF THEIR THOUGHT
& THE brilliance

OF THEIR LIVES.


Why did the Greeks become the originators of how we think,

feel, & create?

What was the character of a people

who invented philosophy,

democracy, education, tragedy,

beauty, & freedom?


HOW, ULTIMATELY, WERE THE GREEKS MADE MASTERS

OF THEMSELVES, AND

THEREFORE OF

THE WORLD?

So together we'll explore:

· THE HOMERIC WORLD,
& how poetry conquered death. 


· THE GREEK GODS,
and their closeness to us mortals.


· JUSTICE,
and its relationship to the only
Ancient Greek sin.


· FREEDOM,
its invention, evolution, & expiration.


· FILOSOFIA,
and the greatest ever
expansions of the mind.


· WAR,
and how a few tiny cities
walloped the world's largest empire.


· THE ACROPOLIS,
& the architectural secrets of antiquity.


· THE SOUL,
where it came from—and where it went.
