Alexander the Great: Truly Great?

Professor Ian Worthington, Professor of Ancient History at Macquarie University

The talk discusses one of the greatest figures from Greek history, who is still used for political and cultural ends. The common view is that Alexander deserved to be called “Great”, since he brought down the vast Persian Empire and opened up the Mediterranean world to the East like never before — and all before he was 33 years old. But how “Great” was he in reality?  I will discuss not only Alexander’s military genius and his legacy, but also his pitfalls, suggesting that it was his father Philip Ii who deserves to be called “The Great”, not his son.
