Download E-books Cultura, libertà e democrazia. Alle origini dell'Europa, l'antica Grecia PDF

By Meier Christian

In keeping with Hegel, "lo spirito europeo ha vissuto in Grecia los angeles sua gioventù". Oggi questa intuizione può essere corroborata da nuove acquisizioni della storia e dell'archeologia, che ci permettono di capire meglio che cosa davvero significhi l'eccezionalità della Grecia nella storia delle civiltà. Perché i greci riuscirono a dar vita a una cultura diversa da tutte le altre fiorite nel corso della storia. In Grecia fu una vasta cerchia di uomini liberi che, attraverso un complesso percorso storico, inaugurò libere forme di vita. "Cultura, libertà e democrazia" segue questo percorso, nelle sue varie fasi e nei suoi risvolti: gli aspetti politici e militari innanzitutto, a partire dal confronto con l. a. Persia e con Roma; e poi los angeles frammentazione e l. a. molteplicità delle città greche, da Atene a Sparta; l'alternarsi di democrazia e aristocrazia, di rivolte e tiranni. A questo percorso è strettamente intrecciato l'aspetto economico, con l. a. spinta dei commerci e l. a. colonizzazione del Mediterraneo. E va tenuto conto dell'intelaiatura specificamente culturale che ispirò questa evoluzione e al pace stesso le diede una forma e una consapevolezza: l'epica di Omero ed Esiodo, il rapporto con le divinità, l'importanza dei simposi e l. a. nascita della filosofia. In una fase di rivoluzione globale, ci suggerisce il libro di Christian Meier, comprendere le nostre radici profonde, i valori che hanno ispirato il percorso della civiltà prima greca e poi europea, è fondamentale.

Christian Meier (Stlop, Pomerania, 1929) è professore di storia antica nell’Università di Monaco di Baviera. È autore, tra gli altri, di l. a. nascita della categoria del politico in Grecia; L’identità del cittadino e l. a. democrazia in Grecia; Progresso. I concetti della politica; Atene; L’arte politica della tragedia greca. Con Garzanti ha pubblicato anche Giulio Cesare.
