Classics is not a subject (in Academia): de Klassieken in de 21ste eeuw

Koenraad Verboven UGent (2012) Oud maar niet out! Denken en doen met de Oudheid. p.29-41
abstract
Classics has disappeared from the curriculum of Belgian and moste other universites in the world. It has evolved into a research domain, like that of Medieval Studies or European Studies, in which various disciplines from various departments and programs are active. Yet Classics are also since many centuries a field of cultural formation. Many of our most basic cultural reflexes are Greco-Roman: our belief in rationality as a way to understands the world, our conviction that people make their own world, that laws are not god-given, but also the faith that there are eternal universal values to which even the gods are subject.
