Inceptions : exploring the common ground of modern European tradition

Online seminar

This seminar questions the foundations and articulations that determine the salient features of European culture. The seminar includes contributions on the analysis of texts and authors that have marked the thought and the history of modern and contemporary culture, as well as on the genesis and metamorphosis of cultural images and ideas, on the symbols and myths that have oriented and still orient the European intellectual and cultural horizon.
