In 508 BCE, A thens entered its classical period, which lasted for nearly two centuries.� In those two centuries, so much was invented by Greek philosophers and proto-scientists that it has been studied by scholars for thousands of years.� One provocative question that scholars have posed is why the Industrial Revolution did not begin with the Greeks.� The answer seems to be along the lines of Classic Greeks not having the social organization or sufficient history of technological innovation before wars and environmental destruction ended the Greek experiment.� The achievements of Greece over the millennium of their intellectual fecundity are far too many to explore in this essay, but briefly, the Greeks invented: democracy, Western philosophy, Western medicine, the watermill, a monetized economy, systematic historical thought, branches of mathematics such as geometry, while developing other branches to unprecedented sophistication, and heliocentric astronomy, which included the idea that Earth was spherical in shape .� Long after the Classic Greek period was over, Hellenic intellectuals and inventors kept making innovations that had major impacts on later civilizations, such as Heron of Alexandria (or some other Greeks) inventing the windmill and steam engine download Exploring Religion pdf.
