Abstract

Learning from the Greeks is possible, but only if we start from two necessary bases: the first one is that our world is profoundly different from theirs; the second one, that free thought requires not being imprisoned by any dogma. The primitive way of thinking of the Greeks is a school that can help us to strip away the enormous number of assumptions on which the contemporary mentality is based.
