ST.PETERSBERG, RUSSIA—The St. Petersberg School of Religion and Philosophy will host “Visions of Beauty: The Legacy of Ancient Greek Civilization in the Era of Globalization" a seminar to be held in Greece from July 5-15, 2015. The seminar will explore ancient Greek culture from a philosophical point of view. The lectures show how the sites we visit and the rituals conducted there all aimed to activate the powers of the human soul (psyche) as Aristotle defines them in his Politics and Nicomachean Ethics.
Participants will travel to key cultural and religious sites in Greece such as the Acropolis, Parthenon, Pryx, Agora, Lyceam, National Archaeological Museum, island of Aegina and temple to Aphasia, Temple to Zeus, Olympic Stadium, National Gardens, and many other significant historical sites. Course lecturing and guiding will be in English by Prof. Dr. Martha Beck (USA), Fulbright professor, Professor of Ancient Philosophy, President of the Olympic Center for Ancient Greek Philosophy and Culture.
