« los angeles Grèce old est los angeles plus belle invention des temps modernes », écrivait Paul Valéry.

Provocation, los angeles toile du maître du Pop paintings, à l’instar de los angeles sentence de Valéry, invite à s’interroger sur notre rapport à l. a. Grèce .

Cet héritage, si longtemps placé au coeur de los angeles tradition européenne, est fait de multiples voyages vers un objet façonné et refaçonné au fil des siècles. De quelles signifi-cations los angeles Grèce a-t-elle été successivement porteuse, à Rome, au Moyen Âge, à l. a. Renaissance et depuis l. a. Révolution française ? De quelles manières a-t-elle aidé à définir les identités culturelles ou nationales, los angeles démocratie, l’histoire ? Et quel sens peut-il y avoir, aujourd’hui encore, à « partir pour l. a. Grèce » ?

François Hartog, par une réflexion lumineuse qui nous conduit d’Hérodote à Jean-Pierre Vernant, en passant notamment par Plutarque, Montaigne ou Fustel de Coulanges, permet de comprendre l’émergence et les ameliorations de ce repère majeur de los angeles pensée occidentale qu’on appelle los angeles Grèce.
