“Reflections on Identity: Greek Philosophy and Weltanschaaung from ‘Byzantine’ Times to Today’s Greece in Crisis”

At the Conference will participate as guest speakers, among others, Prof. DDr. Dr.h.c. Christos Yannaras (Panteion University of Athens), Prof. Dr. Jürgen Pelzer (Oxy, Los Angeles), Prof. Dr. Ilias Papagiannopoulos (University of Pireaus), Prof. Dr. Georgios Steiris (University of Athens), Prof. Dr. Georgios Arampatzis (University of Athens).
