The book presents an overview of the relations of the Greeks and science, during the Ottoman period. It discusses the role of the “modernists”, the Patriarchate and various components of the Greek societies of that period. Instead of the notion “Modern Greek Enlightenment” Yannis Karas promotes the notion of “Modern Greek Revival” in order to better explain the spirit of the scientific renewal of the 18th century.
