    10 Ways Ancient Greece Changed The World

    Interesting tidbits about Ancient Greece.

    10 Ways Ancient Greece Changed The World



    10. Warfare
    No one had ever fought like the Greeks, and no one had ever won like Alexander the Great
    9. Architecture
    We can see the influence of the Greeks in cities around the globe – our world would literally not look the same without them
    8. Politics
    Before the Greeks, politics was just something people did. They made it something people thought about



    7. Medicine
    “First do no harm,” said Hippocrates. He didn’t do a great deal of good to his patients, either, but he did lay the foundations for future medicine



    5. Sport
    In Greece, the hunt for physical perfection and their extreme competitiveness created a new, everlasting spectator event…



    4. Literature
    The Greeks established many of the genres of Western literature




    3. Education

    The Athenians anticipated the widespread literacy and universities of modern democracies, while Spartans inspired totalitarian regimes with their fiercely regimented state schooling


    2. Maths

    The Greeks didn’t invent maths, but they did have a lot of Eureka! moments


    1. Philosophy

    Greek philosophers didn’t only invent their own subject; they also invented science
