What does The Lyceum represent?
The Lyceum, in its purest form, is an institution dedicated to philosophy and scientific inquiry. Yet, for the Greeks, the Lyceum was more; it was the center of Greek mental culture. In fact, the Lyceum was an actual building in Greece dedicated to philosophical debate. Prior to Aristotle, the Lyceum housed the paragons of Greek thought -- Isocrates, Plato, and Socrates -- and even housed the Athenian Assembly.
Aristotle decided to make the Lyceum his classroom, teaching classes there nearly every morning and staying late into the day giving public lectures on philosophy. His teaching-philosophy was more like guided group research. Aristotle had a myriad of pupils, including his most famous -- Alexander the Great, who dedicated a large sum of funds to the Lyceum.
In many respects the Lyceum served as a intersection in the flow of discovery and understanding. While Aristotle originally used it as a classroom, the Lyceum gradually became a focal point for collaborative research, documentation of the progress of philosophy, and scientific observation.
We chose the name Lyceum Communications because we believe that Aristotle demonstrated a mastery of thought and sought to give his mind as a gift to the Greek society. Our goal is to bring individuals back to the Lyceum in a spirit of shared experience, observation, and skill. Aristotle saw every reason to make the skills of research and communication accessible to everyone -- we believe in the same mantra
