The lecture will take issue with existing interpretations of the emergence of the idea of “the West” as a socio-political concept. It will challenge two extreme positions. One that takes “the West” for granted as an uninterrupted self-description and collective identity since the time of the ancient Greeks or at least the Romans; and another that argues that “there is no such thing as a Western Civilization”. As usual, the story is more complicated than either of these sweeping misconstructions.
Georgios Varouxakis BA(Athens, MA(UCL), PhD(UCL), is Professor of the History of Political Thought at Queen Mary University of London and Co-Director of the Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought.
