WHAT IS THE INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR GREEK PHILOSOPHY
AND CULTURE (ICGPC)
The INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR GREEK PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE (ICGPC) is a non-profit academic, reseach and cultural Institution which was formed in 1987 and established by law in 1990.
The ICGPC has its seat in SAMOS (PYTHAGORION), land of IONIA, which is also the birthplace of philosophy.
The ICGPC has as its aim to promote international research into Greek philosophy, and to coordinate and develop the research carried out by specialists in Greek philosophy and Greek Culture.
The Center views Greek philosophy as including the philosophical production of the Greeks from the time of the Presocratics until today, since this intellectual production is expressed in the same language, namely Greek. Thus, it is not only the Ancient Greek Classical Philosophy that is defined as Greek Philosophy, but also the philosophy of the Church Fathers, together with Byzantine, Modern Greek and Contemporary Greek philosophy.
Furthermore, in view of the expansion of its activities in the Eastern Aegean, the Center has as its aim to help communication between peoples of differing cultures and to establish itself as a guiding light and upholder of the creative values of the Greek, Christian, European and ecoumenical spirit.
The ICGPC, in cooperation with the International Association for Greek Philosophy, are sponsoring the publications in philosophy and especially in Greek Philosophy under the title "IONIA PUBLICATIONS".
