Our times so outpace, both in novelty and inventiveness, any other time in mathematics, art, science, philosophy, and literature that anyone who waxes nostalgic about the “lost” Greek event is a nostalgic and ignorant fool that isn’t paying attention. They don’t hold a candle to what we’ve done. Could we have done it without them? No. But we’ve truly surpassed what they did do and should proudly embrace that. Our job is not to “return to the Greeks” but to be “Greeks”. “Hermeneutics” is a reactiornary and tiresome attitude in this connection. That’s all I have to say about that. Let Greece be for us what Egypt was for the Greeks.
