Bernie Lewin, a founding director of the Platonic Academy of Melbourne, will present a lecture entitled The revival of Greek Wisdom in the Renaissance, on Thursday 14 July, at 7 pm, at The Greek Centre, as part of the Greek History and Culture Seminars offered by the Greek Community of Melbourne.
The story of the rebirth of Greek science in the 15th century is essential to the origin myth of the West. But it is not always recognised that this revival was driven by a renaissance of this ancient mathematical mysticism. Science and mystical religion are often thought diametrically opposed. But for these ancients, the one was only an extension of the other. And so too in the Renaissance.
