Glynos was an educator and a philosopher who marked with his work and efforts the Greek intellectual community at the beginning of the 20th century. DimitriosGlynos (1882-1943) was among the first intellectuals who perceived the fact that the social transformation in Greece must be achieved through education.
Education for Glynos was a political act. He designed and instigated the "reforms that did not happen" (1913, 1917-1920) participated in the founding of the educational Association together with other militant demoticists while, at the same time, giving a socialist dimension to his educational dream. Late in his career, he passed from educational reform to social rebellion, and, during the German occupation, he wrote his manifest, "What EAM is and wants."
