Throughout the last 2000 years, the Greek legacy has exerted a powerful influence on the European imagination. It has remained a reference point for western politics, thought and culture and has contributed significantly in shaping the European tradition of rational humanism and critical reflection. The unit draws on literature, images and films to survey the European preoccupation with Greek culture, from the Roman period to Postmodernism, and to explore the reasons behind this ongoing fascination.
