Naturalism in literature makes its appearance around the middle of the 19th century, as a result of the great and rapid progress of the natural sciences. Summarizing the factors that shaped naturalism, we distinguish the following three: a) industrialization, which brings with it any social changes (class inequalities, prosperity of the upper classes, impoverishment of the working and rural population, etc.), thus opening up new fields of concern for the authors, b) the evolution of biology and...

Next, we will present the developments that took place in the field of Greek cinema and the main differences between Old and New Greek Cinema....

The main characteristics of the dramatic art of Aristophanes –based on his work Ornithes (Birds)- and Menander –based on his work Dyskolos- are analyzed in this essay. With Ornithes, Aristophanes turns to Utopia, to the overthrow of the familiar reality, to the paradox, not only serving the comic art, but responding to the political impasse of Athens. The flight of the two Athenians (Peisthetairos, Evelpidis) indignant at the dichotomy of their fellow citizens becomes an occasion to raise...

His writings are heavily concerned with the analysis of state, culture, political leadership, Ideological Hegemony, Intellectuals and political parties. He spent his last eleven years in Mussolini s prisons, where he wrote 32 “Notebooks”. The central and guiding theme of these Notebooks was the development of a new Marxist theory, applicable to the conditions of advanced capitalism. Gramsci saw the role of...

The Greek Revolution radically overthrew the existing Ottoman dominion from 1453 to 1821, with the immediate result of the creation of the new state, independent of the Ottoman Empire, with a homogeneous population, where the Greeks could exercise power and promote their interests.

The transition from the exotic to the familiar inevitably led European ethnologists and anthropologists of the second half of the 20th century to the need to apply (but also test) their epistemological concepts and tools in the historical space of rural societies, by giving priority and special importance in the “curious samples” of social organization and socio-cultural behaviors, which could then be detected among the so-called traditional societies.

School violence and bullying are human behaviors that occur in the school environment and are often - though not necessarily - associated with issues of ethno-cultural diversity. Ethno-culturally diverse students are sometimes blamed for incidents of violence, a phenomenon that is observed both in the media and in everyday life. The scientific research on the subject presents on the one hand the picture of the systematic victimization of students with ethno-cultural peculiarities; on the other...

Homophagy in antiquity has been one of the most basic rituals of the Orpheus’ and Dionysus’ ecstatic mysteries. As the word itself states, it was the practice of eating raw meat, which in mystical cults had a ritual character. Homophagy as a ritual habit appeared in much earlier times. According to some testimonies, in fact, this ritual at the beginning of its appearance required the sacrifice of a human victim. We will examine this version below.

In particular, a large part of Greek mythology concerned the relationship between gods and heroes and their action, offering indirect reasons for the origin of religious rituals.

It is a fact that there is a constant interaction between space and man. This happens in many ways. Any architecture, like any other external object, is understood by man through a process of perception, which transforms the messages of the senses into individual experience and knowledge. But during this process the external stimulus is altered. That is, the inner image one forms of the building is never the same as the actual image of the building. The inner image is charged with various kinds...

In this essay we will examine the confrontation of Descartes as it concerns “method of knowledge” and we will analyze his argumentation in the Meditations on the First Philosophy. Then we will attempt a concise comparison on Descartes’, Locke’s and Hume’s method, in regard to the degree of certainty of knowledge of sensible world.

In recent decades, with the progress made in the treatment of acute and infectious diseases, there has been a significant shift in the interest of physicians and pediatricians in the particular problems of chronic diseases. With the increase in the life expectancy of adolescents with chronic diseases, a need arose to improve the quality of life of an increasing number of these individuals.

Problems posed by Homeric geography, and especially the wanderings of Odysseus, had excited scholars and historians since antiquity. Starting from the journeys described in the Odyssey, two main contexts of research were developed. On the first context belong those who argued that the places Odysseus visited could be identified with specific points on the map (either in the Mediterranean basin or across the Straits of Gibraltar in the Atlantic Ocean). On the second context belong researchers...

Etruscans developed an impressive culture since 8th century BCE. Their art as special cultural expression attracted the attention of researchers and sightseers even before archeology turned to be an officially scientific discipline. The interest of Etruscans for burial rituals and the adoration of “dead” inherited to us an astonishing collection of well-maintained remains of their culture. The immense dimensions of cemeteries, the architecture of graves and the abundance of artefacts are...

The painter of (the vase) of Piraeus was one of the first painters of black-figure pottery and it seems that he was active between 630 and 600 BCE. He is a representative of the Late Proto-Attic period of pottery production, which is related to Piraeus’ and Nessos’ amphoras. However the obvious difference in the quality of the glaze raises reasonable questions: Was a different kind of clay used? The differences are byproducts of technique used in firing? Does clay come from Attic land? Has...

Still bigger problem is the conflict between description and interpretation. The refined...

If the relation between Greeks and Persians is not a story of love and hate (another aspect of love), it is at least a very interesting story. The Persian military campaigns to Asia Minor and Greece, each one with the participation of hundreds of thousands of warriors led by the richest kings of the time, such as Xerxes and Darius, could not possibly aim at the Greeks’ “riches”.

In Cavafy’s poetry, scholars (but also Cavafy himself) seem to distinguish poems in three different categories: the philosophical, the hedonistic, and the historical. Most of the time, however, it happens that a poem belongs to a specific area because it is more characteristic or we just have the feeling that it is superior, while in the poem there are elements that belong to both or both “areas” at the same time.

K.P. Cavafy and K.G. Karyotakis are two poets who have been active in the early 20th century. Their work, although unrecognized by their contemporaries, was a milestone in the course of Modern Greek literature and marked both the aesthetic and the social point of view of modern poets. The so-called poetic's poems are a frequent phenomenon in the work of both Cavafy and Karyotakis.
