Re: Please list the cultural achievements of ancient Greece
  • CONCEPTION OF DEMOCRACY
  • FIRST PHILOSOPHICAL EXAMINATION OF LIFE, VIRTUE, FREEDOM
  • FIRST SERIOUS ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATION (ARISTARCHOS FIRST SUGGESTED THE SUN-CENTERED PLANETARY SYSTEM)
  • MATHEMATICAL, GEOMETRICAL WORKS (PYTHAGORAS AND OTHERS) - THE EGYPTIAN PYRAMIDS' HEIGHT WAS MEASURED WITH THE USE OF SIMILAR TRIANGLES THEOREM
  • PHYSICS INVESTIGATION INTO THE PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS AND FLUIDS (ARCHIMIDES AND OTHERS)
  • FIRST THEATRICAL PLAYS (GREEK TRAGEDIES BY EVRYPIDES, SOFOCLES, AESCHYLOS AND COMEDIES BY ARISTOPHANES).
  • THE ANCIENT GREEK RELIGION WAS PREVALENT THROUGHOUT THE ANCIENT HISTORY IN THE MEDITERRANEAN BASIN AND MARVELOUS ANCIENT GREEK TEMPLES CAN NOW BE FOUND IN OLD GREEK COLONIES IN MODERN TURKEY, SYRIA, ISRAEL, LEBANON, EGYPT, TYNISIA, SOUTH ITALY, SOUTH FRANCE AND OF COURSE ALL OVER GREECE.
  • THE FIRST ODEONS (PLACES TO LEARN MUSIC) CAN BE FOUND IN ANCIENT GREECE.
  • ANCIENT GREEK MEDICINE WAS VERY ADVANCED AND HIPPOCRATES (THE FAMOUS ANCIENT PHYSICIAN) IS CONSIDERED THE FATHER OF MODERN MEDICINE.
  • HERODOTOS IS CONSIDERED THE FATHER OF HISTORY AND THOUKIDIDES IS THE FATHER OF SCIENTIFICALY PROVED HISTORY.
THERE ARE MANY THINGS ONE COULD SAY, BUT IF YOU BEAR IN MIND THAT ONE THIRD OF THE ENGLISH VOCABULARY IS IN FACT GREEK, YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE MAGNITUDE IF GREEK CULTURE...WORDS LIKE ARCHITECTURE, CRITERION, HYPERBOLE, IRONY...
