Episode One - Introduction to a Symposium on the Greeks
19 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The Owl's Legacy is a symposium. A symposium of symposium's. A gathering over food and wine where the host, in this case Marker, picks a topic of discussion, which is ritually discussed in unison with the passing of the wine. The conversation becomes a journey. A journey in which the destination is unknown and the possibilities are endless. For this symposium, strictly for intellectuals, Marker has chosen the topic of the Greeks. We meet a number of authorities on the subject whom have been invited to participate, all whom are backed by an artistic owl, representing their individual contribution to the symposium in it's entirety. They take us on a journey, touching upon things such as the great poet's, ruler's and philosophers, discussing their ideas, innovations, myths, poems, sayings... all of which have moulded the world into the shape we see it today. They discuss how the Greeks have shaped every aspect of our lives, including ourselves. One man says that the Greeks discovered our psyche, our conscience, as well as deviations of the psyche. Things which Freud and other modern thinkers would later be credited with discovering were discussed by the great Greek thinkers of ancient times, such as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Sophacles, Euripides to name only a few. They discuss how Greek poetry and thought is the connection between dreams and reality, the median, from which all things thrive. Their thoughts, poems, songs and stories have survived the ages and have helped us better understand the essence of our being and have comforted us as we know that they have sought and pondered the same questions that we seek to answer, ourselves, today. Their way of life has been the basis for the ways of life of the majority of the world. There is no field which has not been influenced by the Greeks, they are responsible for nurturing that which has enabled us to become the advanced civilization we are today. We owe everything to the Greeks. This is the journey that this discussion, this symposium, the owl's legacy, will bring us on.
