Greek Art and Greek Philosophy
Aug 06, 1989
In the years from 600 to 100 B.C., the Greeks developed a skill at depicting the human form that had not been dreamed of by the other peoples of the ancient world, and has seldom been equaled since. The Greeks also showed man as a heroic being––an achievement even more rare than anatomical accuracy. These two lectures, Illustrated with slides, will give a brief·overview of Greek art, and will show that the artistic progress of the Greeks did not take place in a vacuum or as a mindless evolutionary process, but reflected developments In philosophy.
