Aristotle’s Prime mover: A) Explain Aristotle`s concept of a Prime Mover  Aristotle was a Greek philosopher who lived around the time of 384 BC – 322 BC. He was a student of Plato’s; however, there are differences in their beliefs. He was also tutor of the Ruler of Macedon‘s son Alexander; who later became Alexander the Great, one of the most successful commanders in history. Along with Socrates and Plato, Aristotle was a major influence on western philosophy as it is today. One of the key differences between Plato and Aristotle’s philosophies are beliefs about the ‘creation of a form.’ Plato believed in a demiurge – a figure that shaped a form from matter that already existed, so not in itself a creator, but a force that molded a form into shape.
Like English Greek, was phonetic, and, was the first language that used vowels. Greek's incredibly diverse vocabulary also influenced and contributed to modern English.

Ionic Doric The earliest monumental buildings in Greek architecture were the temples. Since these were solidly built and carefully maintained, they had to be replaced only if destroyed. There were two main orders of early Greek architecture, the Doric and the Ionic, and their lasting example tended to make Greek architecture conservative toward changes in design or in building technology. The Doric style, which originated around 400 BCE brought rise to a whole new type of building technique and style, and was used in mainland Greece and spread to the Greek colonies in Italy.
Revealed through the prose of the Odyssey are the values and characteristics that define the culture of “Homeric Greece”. Chief among these are Arete (excellence/virtue), Phronesis (practical wisdom/wit), Kratos (strength/power), Oikos (family/loyalty), Xenia (hospitality), and Kleos (glory). Being in a collegiate Greek organization I am no stranger to Arete as it is ultimately, like the heroes of Homer, what we seek to attain, as we put it: “to achieve a sound mind in a sound body” so that we may best “become balanced men and leaders for the world’s communities”. The stories of the Iliad and the Odyssey are ones of great men and women seeking Arete. By endeavoring to achieve this greatness through grand words and deeds one could also attain Kleos, or glory, something the ancient Greeks valued highly.
This resulted in the export of Greek culture and language to these new realms, and moreover Greek colonists themselves. Equally, however, these new kingdoms were influenced by the indigenous cultures, adopting local practices where beneficial, necessary, or convenient. Hellenistic culture thus represents a fusion of the Ancient Greek world with that of the Near East, Middle East, and Southwest Asia, and a departure from earlier Greek attitudes towards "barbarian" cultures.  The Hellenistic period was characterized by a new wave of Greek colonization (as distinguished from that occurring in the 8th–6th centuries BC) which established Greek cities and kingdoms in Asia and Africa.  Those new cities were composed of Greek colonists who came from different parts of the Greek world, and not, as before, from a specific "mother city".
Following various military conquests in the Greek East, Romans adapted a number of Greek educational precepts to their own fledgling system. Roman students were taught (especially at the elementary level) in similar fashion to Greek students, sometimes by Greek slaves who had a penchant for education. But differences between the Greek and Roman systems emerge at the highest tiers of education. Roman students that wished
Roman architecture did not simply appear out of thin air; it has its roots in Grecian and Etruscan architecture. The Etruscans gained most of their knowledge of building from the Greeks (Carr). However, they were the first to build big stone structures in Italy. Although they took after many Greek architectural ways, they also developed new forms of their own. The Etruscans tried to create a new architectural style that differed from that of the Greeks.
