Greek legacy

One of the most important Greek legacy was philosophy. Philosophers introduced methods of intellectual inquiry that combined observation, systematic analysis and the exercise of pure reason. The "lovers of wisdom" founded science and philosophy, their challenges made the speculative leap from supernatural to natural explanations of the unknown. They did an important contribution since they thoughts are useful up to now.

Greek legacy

I personally believe that one of the most important legacy that the world inherited is architecture since we can see a lot of buildings which use the different types of columns and designs created by the Greeks. For example, in our country, the main Cathedral of Buenos Aires has a pediment with a high relief making reference to the encounter of Joseph with his brothers. Another example is the San Francisco Church in our province. The tower of this church follows the three orders of the Greek architecture: ionic, doric and corinthian. Nowadays, we are able to see Greek architecture in the most important buildings of the world.

Architecture: the outstanding greek legacy

Architecture is the outstanding greek legacy that predominates nowadays. In many buildings we can see the greek doric order, for example, the simplest greek order. The ionic order, more elaborated is also implemented in our times as the corinthian oder. Also, it possible to hightlight the notion of proportion in greek's style, harmonious building.

Greek legacy

  One of the most important legacies of greeks is the first principles of medical science. They proposed the separation of the natural from the supernatural, and as a result the rational investigation of health problems and also universe in general. Besides, there exists an oath, the "Hippocratic Oath", that holds Hippocrates moral and ethical practice of medicine.

Greek legacies

The power point presentation number 21 is about democracy. In my opinion, this is one of the most important Greek legacies since all people can vote to elect their representatives in a democratic country. In this way all members in a society is involved in running a country, an organization, etc. Nowadays many societies enjoy this system of government and all people has equal rights and obligations.

In my opinion,the most important Greek legacy is the development of Democracy. Since then politics has changed and many countries has implemented it.

Plato's Republic
I choose Plato´s Republic as an important legacy especially because it defends a practical system of education by which every citizen might arrive at knowledge of the Good. Education is available equally to men and women. If women are to be employed in the same duties as men, they must receive the same instruction: music, gymnastic, and military training. Nowadays, education is for every citizen it is a right and it is also public what means that you do not have to pay for it. Education is and was very important, knowledge is the most important thing that people can achieve

Greek Legacy

“Our form of government does not enter into rivalry with the institutions of others. We do not copy our neighbors, but are an example of them. It is true that we are called a democracy, for the administration is in the hands of the many and not in the few”. Pericles was not only a great orator and statesman but he also was a visionary. He held the ideals values of democracy “the power was in people hands” and belief that all people have a place and a purpose within the state. Athenian democracy was different to our democracy; however it set the standard for our kind of government. I think that this political system is one of the most important Greek legacies.

Greek Legacy

When we talk about the greek main legacy, it is not easy to choose one. In a way, as it reads in the text book, we are all greeks, since we share many features and principles of their culture. In my opinion, philosophy was the most far reaching  important aspect that influences our culture.

From the naturalist philosophers on, the use of reason , observation, and analysis laid the foundations for what came to be known as the scientic method widely use in all the fields of science. In fact, science started being studied by the greeks and many theories developed in the sixth century are still unchallenged. That is the case of Democritus´atomic theory of matter applied nowadays. Pythagoras´reseach is printed in high school text books.

Greek legacy

The most important greek legacy was the development of the democracy. the greek citizens were really well organized and they were able to choose their representatives, so the decisions were taken by the common people. Although the democracy is quite different now, it contributed to the welfare of many countries and the  well-being of citizens.
