No. He concetrated in Middle East as far as India.
he himself was though by Aristotle
Conquest of the World. He thought that that was the end of the world in the east. He planned to then turn west and take western Europe, imagining that was the limit of the… world.
Proskynesis. However, the Greeks were greatly unfavorable of praising a mortal.
There is no written record indicating why Alexander the Great wanted to conquer as many countries as he could. It was most likely the desire to create an immortal legacy a…nd to civilize what were perceived as barbaric peoples.

Alexander did a number of things to "blend" the cultures and create a brotherhood between Macedonians and Persians. After 329 BC, he adopted Persian clothes (white robe and sa…sh, according to Diodorus) and tried to integrate Persian court culture into his own, especially prostration (but this failed). He married a Persian chick named Roxanne and encouraged the rest of his soldiers to also marry interracially by giving them dowries. He added oriental horse archers to his army in 329, and steadily recruited Persian soldiers to fill the gaps of dead Macedonians. The most effective way he mixed the cultures was by founding Greek cities and spreading Hellanistic thought in the East. The cities were all that remained after his death, because he failed to name a successor and his empire was split up into small parts, destroying his efforts of fusion.
Greek culture and ideas.... It's weird I had that for homework 2nite
At Temple of the Nymphs at Mieza in Macedonia under the tutelage of Aristotle.
Was Alexander the Great a conscious promoter of Greek civilization or a egomaniac drunk with a lust for conquest?
He was both. He attempted to introduce Greek culture as a civilising influence amongst the peoples he took over, but was constantly diverted by conquests until his early… death. After ten years spent conquering the Persian Empire and then beginning to introduce Greek culture, he was also planning a venture to take over Carthage and Sicily in the west when he died/was assassinated at the age of 30.
