Apostolos Doxiadis
Lecture Theatre, Ioannou Centre, 66 St Giles', Oxford

Apostolos Doxiadis is a writer and scholar, author of the international bestsellers Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture and Logicomix.

In this lecture Doxiadis addresses the question:
'What is the relation of the modern Greeks to the ancient? 
Thοugh the question was crucial to the formation and development of the Greek national state, as well as the definition of its citizens’ identity, it became increasingly irrelevant after the collapse of the military dictatorship, in 1974. Yet, amazingly, it has resurfaced during the crisis, a disquieting revenant.'
