Ancient Athenian Democratic Knowledge and Citizenship: Connectivity and Intercultural Implications
Gundara, Jagdish S.
Intercultural Education, v22 n4 p231-241 2011
This paper explores the implications that ancient Athens had for modern representative democracies and the links that can be made to the philosophical principles that form the essence of intercultural education. Such an exploration shows that modern democratic societies have ignored many key aspects of the important legacy left to us by these early experiments in democracy. It also shows how ancient Greece was a society deeply and profoundly shaped by the multicultural environment in which it existed.
