The classics are so termed because of the enduring nature of the Greek and Roman influence on language, science, medicine, literature, philosophy, politics, military strategy, engineering, and perhaps above all, the physical legacy they have left us in the way of art and architecture.  So impressive was this art and architecture that it has caused more than one renaissance (re-birth) of the classical style, and indeed seems to be perennial.
Our culture and civilisation owe so much to the classical age:  did you know we use the Roman alphabet?; that the word ‘alphabet’ is a Greek word?; that we use the Julian Calendar, named for Julius Caesar, and that he also gave his name to a method of birth?; that the way we tell the time was determined thousands of years ago in Mesopotamia, and that the Greeks and Romans took it to the ends of their empires along with their languages?; did you know that Greek and Latin words are the basis of most English words in the legal, medical, philosophical and religious professions?
If you didn’t know some of this, but want to learn more, or if you did know all that, and have an interest in any part of the classical contribution to our modern society, come to our interesting lectures and join our association.  There is no age or knowledge requirement: just an interest in the classics and a thirst for knowledge.  Come and be a philosopher (seeker after wisdom).
