Modern Philosophy. A great cultural movement in Europe called the Renaissance overlapped the end of the Middle Ages and formed a transition between medieval and modern philosophy. The Renaissance began in Italy and lasted from about 1300 to about 1600. It was a time of intellectual reawakening stemming from the rediscovery of ancient Greek and Roman culture During the Renaissance, major advances occurred in such sciences as astronomy, physics, and mathematics.

The Greek-American eye or sensibility can be seen in every community generated video.

As archival collections around the country report, the Greek American community has never been slow in documenting and then broadcasting itself on each new media as it becomes available. Hiding this fact, from Greeks as well as the general American public, is the common view that our ethnic group is too clannish or withdrawn to allow itself to be recorded by whatever the 'high-technology' of the day. Nothing could be further from the truth. Greek-American everyday life as well as the most solemn of public events have seen extensive documentation in print, audio-recordings, radio, and film for well over one hundred years.
