During the episodes of 1968 in France Alexandre Kojeve was asked what the students in the streets of Paris should do. His answer was “learn Greek.”

Did Kojeve mean that the rebellious students should do something really useful, enlightening and revolutionary? At least this is how I understand it – and I wonder how many leftist (or any) intellectuals and politicians today would identify Greek learning and political revolution…

Cf. Learning Greek without reason!
