Classical Antiquity as a Testing Ground
In her recent Eidolon article, Federica Carugati (PhD, Stanford, 2015) argues that modern social scientists often fail to look back at classical antiquity as they investigate the roots of modern liberal democracies. Her insightful article reminds that classical antiquity can serve as a testing ground for assessing the robustness of modern social scientific theories.
With these annual lectures on Classical Art and Culture we honor the memory of a renowned scholar, teacher and writer.
