Herwig Görgemanns (1931 – ) is a classical scholar with a doctorate in classical philology from Würzburg University. He is a fellow at Harvard’s Centre for Hellenic Studies, is the author of an article in a magazine concerning classical philology, entitled Wahrheit und Fiktion in Platons Atlantis-Erzählung (Truth and fiction in Plato’s Atlantis – Narration) (Hermes 128, 2000, p405 – 419) in which he expressed the view that the Atlantis story contained some historical truth*[and that the Sea Peoples‘ attack on Egypt may have been part of that.]*
