The Greeks Aren't Dead After All
Reviewed in the United States on December 11, 2017
The authors end on a glum note, and maybe are justified when looking at the wasteland of higher education, but since the 1990s Homer has been resurrected in K-12 classical education! In fact, that's one of the few things that gives me hope for the future of the American republic. Home schooling has grown tremendously, and mostly focuses on a classical approach, Christian classical schools are flourishing, and charter (public) classical schools are springing up all over the country. The latter is especially encouraging to me because there is no greater antidote for postmodern relativism than a classical education, and in classical charter schools kids are being taught that Truth and objective reality exists. You can't get more counter culture in our day.
As for the book, I learned a lot I never really knew about the Greek worldview, or had it put a new way that I found enlightening. I didn't quite realize how much the Greed and biblical worldview had in common, and how much we need both in our culturally sick age.
