Greek cultural history – Jacob Burckhardt

The Jacob Burckhardt Foundation Basel and the publishers C.H.Beck and Schwabe invite us to present their foundation and discuss the thoughts of Jacob Burckhardt on Greek cultural history.

Burckhardt considered the study of ancient history an intellectual necessity and was a highly respected scholar of Greek civilization. “The Greeks and Greek Civilization” sums up the relevant lectures, “Griechische Kulturgeschichte”, which Burckhardt first gave in 1872 and which he repeated until 1885. At his death, he was working on a four-volume survey of Greek civilization.

Followed by an apero.
