The end of the world as we… don’t know it: a review of the eschatological theories and predictions Print E-mail
Written by Antonis Kousoulis   


The first prediction over the end of the world was probably phrased at the first time someone realized that we will not be here forever. Just like the way the origins of philosophy coincided with the first complex thought, or the first medical practices followed the first human disease, eschatological predictions immediately followed the initial realization that Earth, in fact, is not immortal. At first, it was religious books which gave the idea, but nowadays everyone can share his thought on the end of the world through the internet or make a movie. The “2012” science fiction disaster film talking about the, seemingly, upcoming end of the world is only the tip of the iceberg.

Harvey Cushing : the contribution of a gifted doctor to Endocrinology Print E-mail
Written by Ilianna Galli-Vareia   


As far as endocrinology is concerned, Cushing’s contribution is undoubtedly enormous. As a neurosurgeon, he had the chance to study the lesions of the pituitary gland and its various consequences, such as acromegaly or gigantism. However, Harvey Cushing has been mostly linked to the syndrome that bears his name. It was first described in 1932 in his paper “The Basophil Adenomas of the Pituitary Body and their Clinical Manifestations”

Legal responsibility due to prenatal and preimplantation genetic diagnosis & eugenic abortion in Greece Print E-mail
Written by Kostis Voumvourakis   


Medical malpractice following prenatal and preimplantation diagnosis often leads to procreating handicapped or seriously ill children. In this article an effort has been made to present and evaluate the legal claims of parents as well as those of damaged children (!), when such cases are brought before domestic Courts. Serious legal, ethical and social issues are raised by the legal claims when presented by the children. These problems are identified and analyzed taking into account both Greek recent case – law and some ground – breaking foreign judgments.In addition, Greek legal regime on eugenic abortion is considered too strict; parents are forced to act in a rather not “legally compatible” way, in order to prevent an upcoming birth. Thus, in reality, criminal law seriously intervenes in family planning, although the role of the legislature should be exclusively informative and by no means invasive. Finally, several conclusions are drawn and a few suggestions are being proposed, in order to effectively alter the Greek (legal) reality on these matters. 


Solon, the legislator of Greek Antiquity Print E-mail
Written by Evangelos Kostikas   


Solon (640- 560 B.C.) had been one of the most well-known and respected legislators, politicians and poets of the Greek antiquity. He was the first to create an organized legal system in ancient Athens, based on specific boundaries and principles. Taking into consideration that the social order and justice could only result from the majority of the citizens, he introduced the engagement of all civilians to the decisions concerning the prosperity of the State. In this article, we present his life and his legal legacy, which set the grounds for an early democracy.

Ivan Pavlov: an international pioneer of Physiology Print E-mail
Written by Vasiliki Gkanti   


Pavlov was the first truly international pioneer of physiology whose contributions continue to shape our understanding of human physiology until today. Pavlov’s work on conditioned reflexes and the physiology of the gastrointestinal tract was awarded in 1904 the Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine. Conditional reflexes led to a new psychologically oriented school of physiology and stimulated ideas about many aspects of human behavior as a result of conditioning. His work opened a remarkable gate to the knowledge of the complicated functions of our nervous system.
