The ideas and achievements of the ancient Greeks changed their world
and still affect us today.
Philosophers such as Sokrates, Plato and Aristotle formulated ideas
about how the world worked. The study of history was created by Herodotus
and Thucydides. Artists tried to find more natural and realistic ways
of representing the world. Doctors, like Hippokrates, started to look
for rational reasons for the causes of illness and disease.
