6 Why do we study ancient Greek civilization?
People have been studying the Greeks for so long that we have learned to see them in many different ways. Some people see the Greeks as the beginning of Western Civilization: if you want to take this approach, you might teach about how the Greeks invented the geometrical proof, the scientific method, the writing of history and plays. You might also mention how much our literature owes to Greek mythology, our civic architecture to the Greek temple, our churches to the Greek basilica, and our theaters to the Greek theater. Some people see the Greeks as very much like us; if you want to show them that way you'd talk about their democratic government, their court system, and their poetry.
