Solon said that, in order to be free, a citizen had to study; education wasthe ground of democracy and in Athens there was no illiterate citizen. The education wasboth of the body as well as of the soul in a natural continuity... Plato was even awarethat in all that there was, there was a core of dissension (entropie) that sooner or laterled to the fall. He tried to set a fortress model that would minimize the effects of this coreof destruction. In the dialogue entitled Republica , he pointed out that it was in thepower of man to minimize the evil and to build a harmonious fortress that would preventthe destruction. The idea of harmony, which is to be found also in music andmathematics, is extended also to the relations between people... Man can complete itselfthrough education and culture. I feel sorry that people do not see these simple things andwe witness a rush of goods and pleasures, a hedonism that has been before. Thecontemporary man does not realize that the Humanity has already gone through suchsituations and is in danger to repeat them, danger that could be avoided throughknowledge and understanding , says today, a few thousand years since the release ofPlato’s theory, our compatriot, Univ. Prof. Dr. Nicolae Sacalis-Calata1.
