epiStoa in a nutshell

Ancient Greek and Latin have - to different degrees - strongly influenced the majority of European languages.
They are ubiquitous in the terminology of medicine, laws, arts, the humanities as well as the natural and social sciences.
Knowledge of the Ancient Languages can therefore markedly facilitate the study of these fields.

Atomists and the Stoa school produced ideas that were rediscovered in the renaissance,
further developed by humanists and in the age of enlightenment
and are essential to present-day European thought.
The natural sciences are based on the atomism of Democritus, Epicurus, and Lucretius,
they have added a myriad of details without contradicting the original principles.
Key ideas of the Stoa have preserved their relevance and brilliance. They continue to serve as an orientation. 
The European Values and the Ancient Languages do not automatically self-perpetuate.
Upholding them for a peaceful future rather requires continual effort.
In lieu of lamenting or complaining,
epiStoa lobbies the promotion of the European Values and the Ancient Languages
through a variety of activities and projects.
