From the Greeks to the Greens: Images of the Simple Life

Front Cover
Reinhold Grimm, Jost Hermand
Univ of Wisconsin Press, 1989 - History - 144 pages

Ranging from Hellenistic pastoral to the contemporary counterculture activities of the "Greens," the essays in this volume underscore the complexity of simplicity. Whether the simple life is located in a culture's past or in its future, in a secluded corner or beyond society's boundaries, it remains a fascinating subject for discussion.
