Dialogue of Cultures
"DIALOGUE OF CULTURES"
Helga Zepp LaRouche, international President of the Schiller Institute, was the guest speaker at the 6th International Schiller Talks, an annual symposium of the Austrian Institute New Impulses Through the Arts and Pedagogy, chaired by theater director Peter Wolsdorff.
The event, held March 18-19, 2002, at Perchtoldsdorf, near Vienna, was co-sponosred by the University of Vienna and the Austrian Government, and was also attended by representatives of UNESCO. The theme this year was, whether classical education was still necessary, or whether it should be abandoned in favor or modernist concepts of education(!)
In her presentation, Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche came out in strong defense of classical culture. She said that it is important to make people familiar with the thoughts and writings of the great authors and philosophers of classical culture, especially of the18th and early 19th centuries.
Having access to these classical humanist concepts is crucial for people to create an antidote against the advance of ideologies in favor of the clash of civilizations.
