Aristotle, inventor of formal logic, a foundation of mathematics and science, considered by the author of the book Human Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950 to possibly be the most important innovation ever made.

Ancient Greece was a civilization originating in Greece, following invasions/colonizations by Indo-Europeans, and spreading to other areas around the Mediterranean Sea in association with trade, colonies, and conquests.


The influence of Ancient Greece, in part through its influence of Ancient Rome, on Western civilization is enormous. Hellenic culture evolved over several thousand years, with its earliest known civilization being in the Mycenean and Minoan era, continuing into Classical Greece, the birth of the Hellenistic era and through the influence of the Roman Empire and its Hellenic Eastern successor the Byzantine Empire.

There are various less politically correct views on Ancient Greece, on issues such as race and the causes of the initial success and later decline. See the "External links" section.
