"the philosophy is the study of death". (Plato)

Liantinis in order to complete the study of death put alone him end in his life. He wanted in this way to imitate the ancient philosopher Empedocles who jumped in the crater of volcano of Etna.




Liantinis did not jump in a volcano. He entered in a cave and put end in his life. This cave is in the top of mountain Taygetos near Sparta . In June 1998. For seven years no one did not know where he was found.



In reality existed a cousin of Liantinis that knew the secret but had promised not speak if they do not pass seven years.

So his skeleton was discovered in July 2005. The way that Liantinis died but also his philosophy and his books made big impression in the Greeks. Today enough men study his philosophy and they try occupy the reasons that led him to the suicide.


This is the reason that we make the hommage in Gemma, because this is the name of his last book. It appears that this star had particular importance for his philosophy. Particularly in combination the mythology that accompanies this star.

ΑΦΙΕΡΩΜΑ ΣΤΗ ΓΚΕΜΜΑ




Προσπαθώντας να καταλάβουμε λίγο καλύτερα το γιατί ο Δημήτρης Λιαντίνης ονόμασε το τελευταίο του βιβλίο "Γκέμμα", κάνουμε αυτό το αφιέρωμα στο ομώνυμο αστέρι:




Η Γκέμμα είναι το αστέρι α του αστερισμού του Βορείου Στεφάνου.

Είναι γνωστή επίσης με το όνομα Αλφέκκα. (Alphecca )

Ο Βόρειος Στέφανος (Corona Borealis, συντομογραφία: CrB) είναι αστερισμός του βορείου ημισφαιρίου που σημειώθηκε στην αρχαιότητα από τον Πτολεμαίο και είναι ένας από τους 88 επίσημους αστερισμούς που θέσπισε η Διεθνής Αστρονομική Ένωση.
