In this method, it used a question-and-answer format to lead pupils to see things for themselves by using their own reasons. Education has been affected by this because most teaches use this format to help students with studying. Another philosopher from Greek time is Plato. He was Socrates student and developed many philosophical ideas about political systems and reality. Plato decided that both, men and women, should have the same education and the pursuit of happiness.
Early Greek philosophy, in turn, was influenced by the older wisdom literature and myths of the Near East. As M.L.

And writing as a new media where it can be directed to a certain audience instead of everybody and it can help lessen miscommunication. It does come across that Socrates prefers one, speech, over the other but regardless in today’s time written arguments is the more popular media. As stated above many of the rhetoric tools that we use today was also used back in Socrates time.

Periclean Athens was, in fact, the schoolmaster of Greece, as they taught through their culture, their politics, and finally their ideals. The Athenians during this time taught by example and excelled in these areas so much that the remaining areas of Greece, and even the modern Western world were influenced and learned from this great city. In Athens, their culture was refined by this point in time with their individualized dramatic and visual arts. These aspects of their culture were vital to their identity.
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

Project 1 Greece is one of the most important and treasured cultures in the world history. In addition, Greece also has brought many important contributions to our today’s lives with their traditions, food, religions, cultures, and even careers. The Greeks revolutionized the word of psychology from many years ago known as the Classical Age of Greece with such of important ancient philosophers as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, etc. Alexander the Great was another important and key man in the history of Greece that carried the culture to many other countries such as Egypt, India, and Persia.

They also had a political purpose as they were often built to celebrate civic power and pride, or offer thanksgiving to the patron god of a city for success in war. 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.
the theory of knowledge, and attempt to discuss the development of different theories of philosophers ranging from pre-Socratic to post-Aristotelian Ancient Greece. 2. Pre-Socratic Epistemology Before any specific reference is made to philosophers of the pre-Socratic era, one must comment on the shifting in the mind-set that was taking place in Ancient Greece at this time. All that was known to the Greeks was that of traditionally accepted and unquestioned truths pertaining to the gods communicated to the people by poets such as Homer and Hesiod. (Lawhead 2011:15-16).
The primary objective of Greek art was to explore the order of nature and to convey philosophical thought, while Roman art was used primarily as a medium to project the authority and importance of the current ruler and the greatness of his empire. This change in the meaning of art from Greek to Roman times shows the gradual decline in the importance of intellectualism in ancient western culture. The fact that Greek civilization reached a point at which its art reflected some of the most refined thought ever recorded in the ancient world shows the importance of intellectualism in this culture. The Doryphoros, a sculpture done by Polycleatus himself, serves as an excellent example of how art reflects philosophical thought. This sculpture was constructed using a strict mathematical formula that was believed to represent the perfect male body.
