 Is There An Answer To Everything? A journey to the world of Greek mathematics

The exhibition deals with the development of mathematics and mathematical thought in the ancient Greek world. Using the new technologies (video, digital interactive applications, Virtual Reality exhibits) and adopting modern museological concepts, the exhibition attempts to demonstrate the importance of Greek mathematics for Greek and European culture. The tour starts from the 6th century BC and reaches the 4th century AD, examining the most important "incidents" and figures of the history of Greek mathematics. There is also a brief reference to Pre-Hellenic mathematics of the Egyptians and the Babylonians, as well as to the course of the texts of Greek mathematicians after the end of the ancient world, from the Byzantine monasteries and the Arab copying workshops to the European scientists of the Renaissance and the period of the Scientific Revolution. The exhibition also includes references to the scientific applications in astronomy, mathematical geography and music.
