Modern Greek Lessons: A Primer in Historical Constructivism

Synopsis

Through a blend of lively detail and elegant narration, James Faubion immerses us in the cosmopolitan intellectual life of Athens, a centerless city of multiplicities and fragmentations, a city on the margins of Europe recovering from the repressive rule of a military junta. Drawing inspiration from Athens and its cultural elite, Faubion explores the meaning of modernity, finding it not in the singular character of Western civilization but instead in an increasingly diverse family of practices of reform.
