Reviving the Delphical Ideal

delphixo1(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   The 5th Summer School and the 1st International Symposium titled: “Nature and Morality: Dialogue for the Survival” is currently taking place in Delphi from July 12 until July 18.     The establishment of these scientific meetings began in 2005 in the context of a Revival of Delphical Ideal. The aim of this year’s scientific encounter is to discuss the contribution of Hellenic thought in resolving contemporary problems of the modern world.  The events are organised by the Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Municipality of DelphiAggelos Sikelianos –one of the major Greek contemporary poets – was the first one who was inspired to revive the Delphic Idea, as a tribute to humanity. In this effort, Sikelianos put together the Delphic Festival in 1927 and in 1930. In honour of his memory, the European Cultural Centre of Delphi restored his house in Delphi, where today is located the Museum of Delphic Festivals.
