The Cow by the Sacred Spring

BBC Radio 3

by G. S. Kirk , Regius Professor of Greek in the University of Cambridge. In his recent book, The Idea of a Town, Joseph Rykwert argues that city dwellers in earlier epochs were made to feel at one with their urban environment, not only through traditions and monuments but also by their city's links with the principles of nature. Professor Kirk examines Rykwert's theories and their relevance to today's urban life.
