The Brilliance of Ancient Greece

Gary Hull

Presented at: IRM 1998

Date: Jun 28, 1998

Ancient Greece is the source of Western Civilization. The Greeks, starting with Homer in the 8th century B.C., discovered literature, science, mathematics, philosophy. They made significant advances in political freedom, sculpture, trade, and writing. Using the Egyptian, Minoan and Mycenean cultures as a background, these two lectures explain ow Greece rose from the ashes of a 300-year "dark age" (11th - 8th century B.C.) to the heights of greatness, culminating in the achievements of Aristotle and Sophocles. Dr. Hull defends Greece's preeminence from academia's latest irrationalism––Afrocentrism, and he explains the steps by which the Greeks discovered the concept "philosophy."
