About the Project
15-17 May 2024
Organization: Municipality Aristotle
Aristotle, one of the most important and timeless philosophers of global academic thinking, was born in 384 BC in Stagira, Eastern Halkidiki. His work has covered all philosophical concepts and quests: nature, being, ethics, justice / in combination with the critical research of the political development of the Greek city-states.
After his death, cultural festivals and sports games entitled “THE ΑRISTOTELEIA” were instituted to honour his memory. Events, which focused and fully highlighted the complexity of his personality, dominated the cultural calendar of the Hellenistic city of Stagira, while bequeathing the responsibility of their perpetuation.
The international symposium “From Aristotle to Mount Athos”, with a pilgrimage and cultural flavour, will welcome domestic and international academics, as well as representatives of the global tourism industry on 15-17 May 2024 in archaeological and religious sites, creating a holistic experience of exploring the worship paths of Eastern Halkidiki.
