DI.K.A.M. expresses a deep sorrow for the death of John-Hugh Seiradakis

The “Interdisciplinary Centre for Aristotle Studies,” A.U.Th. (DI.K.A.M.), expresses a deep sorrow for the death of John-Hugh Seiradakis, the Vice-President of the Board.

With his scientific/research work, John H. Seiradakis has honoured Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as well as Greece, internationally: A Professor of Astrophysics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for four decades, an Astrophysicist of international reputation and esteem, who has been awarded, among others, the European Descartes Prize, an admirable teacher, a charming speaker and one of the most prominent scientists in the interdisciplinary team of the Antikythera Mechanism.

The “Interdisciplinary Centre for Aristotle Studies,” A.U.Th., is proud of his participation in the Founding Board and the Scientific Committee all the past years. His contribution, with the integrity and seriousness that characterized him, but also with his passion for Aristotle's relation to the sciences, and in general for the significance of the Stageirite's work, has greatly contributed to our whole effort to promote the interdisciplinary study of Aristotle’s work worldwide.

A wonderful, kind, modest, polite person, who won the love and respect of all of us who knew him, has left with his death a void that can barely be filled.

The path to the stars is now wide open.

We will always remember him with love.


On behalf of the Board
