About Greek History on Brainscape

What is Greek History?

Greece is a land synonymous with mythology, philosophy, and architecture. Its winding path through history provided a variety of archaeological treasures, as well as wondrous constructions of classical antiquity. However, what can Greek History do for us?

Greek History encompasses the study of the lives of ancient Greeks – their territory, vast achievements, contributions, and unique perspective to humanity. To them, we can learn that man can be both simultaneously capable of worst crimes and life-changing achievements; that each person is both great and important; mortal and fallible.

Perhaps, the two great ideas we can take away from the study of Ancient Greece is the concept of Democracy and Philosophy.

Developed under Solon, Cleisthenes, Ephialtes, and Pericles, Greece became a cradle of democracy. From history, we learned that democracy isn’t just a system to run a state, but a spirit of community, oneness, equality, and comradeship.

Also, Greece was the home of famous philosophers – Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle who united to search for what they call Eudaimonia or happiness and fulfillment. Their philosophy somehow educated people in finding the way through the different life dilemmas.

These are some of the reasons why we study Greek History, but the overall task is to learn many lessons in life and put them to work in the present world.

Majority of students who study Greek History become historians, educators, biographers, historical site guides, state librarians, conservation manager, museum curators/educators, tour managers, artifact restorers, and researchers.
