Was the Greeks more famous then the Romans as Philosophers?
Yes. The roots of Western philosophy lie in the prolific philosophy the ancient Greeks . The Romans adopted two schools of Greek philosophy which became popular around the empire: stoicism and Epicureanism.
The Romans were more practical, although this does not amount to saying the the Greeks were not; they certainly were. The Romans were less interested in science and theoretical thinking than the Greeks. They were great engineers and focused on the infrastructural development of their empire.
Is it true that Romans wanted their art to be useful while Greeks were more interested in beauty alone?
It is true that the Romans had a more utilitarian approach than the Greeks.
Well the Romans improvised off of Alexander the Great who preserved Greek Culture so the Romans took many things. However the names of their gods are different and the Romans were alot more advanced in MSchinery like the Arch, acqueducts. However the Greeks are alot more known for their philosophers and mathemiticians like Aristotle, Homer, Archemidies, etc.
The ancient Greek culture had the greatest influence on the Roman Empire more than any other. All the Greek poets and philosophers were studied by Romans throughout the empire. In many ways Greek architecture in major temples and monuments can be seen in the buildings of the Roman Empire. Greeks were often made teachers of wealthy Romans' children. This was true whether the Greeks were slaves or freemen.
The greeks believed in gods. Romans belived jesus was the son of one true god.
No; both Greeks and Romans had slaves. Thus can not be said to prize the individual human for his or her own self.
The Romans had a better organised army with better formations, The Greeks were more learned with better weapons and tactics, and the Egyptians were harsh rulers making the soldirs more afraid of them than the enemy.Romans are better than the egytains and Greeks that's why they conqued them.
Romans, Greeks, Hindus, tons more.
Romans because they built a vast empire of wealth and culture far more superior to the Greeks
Buddhist, Greeks and Romans and more.
Extremly different the roman gods were focused more on displine adn the greeks weren't
Some very famous philosophers are Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Confucius, Descartes, Nietzsche, and many, many more.
there were more than three greek philosophers but the most famous were socrates,plato,and aristotle. others included thales,anaximander,anaximenes, and others.
Romans believe in the same gods as the Greeks but they know them by different names, and Romans are more brutal
Greeks were more traditional and culture. Romans were more disciplined and warlike.
While the gods are essentially the same because the Romans, once they conquered the Greeks, essentially copied the gods of the Greeks, the Roman gods are more warlike than their Greek counterparts. This is most likely due to the more warlike nature of the Romans. While the Greeks prided themselves in their philosophical natures, plays, schools, etc. the Romans tended to pride themselves more in their military accomplishments (weapons, strategies, formations, discipline, etc.); subsequently, their… Read More
They were really strict in the stories of romans. In greek times they were really into parting and into sleeping late and stuff. In roman times they were even more motavated. They had less affairs with humans and started acting strict. The Romans thought the Greeks were weak while the Greeks thought the Romans were barbarians.
because the romans has been in school teach geography and mathericals to the other romans students. the greeks has been in school but they do not paytroch to the teachers in Europe. that my ANWERS
In my opinion. Romans they ruled a republic/empire for nearly 1000 years and amassed much more power than the Greeks ever did, some say Alexander was stronger but remember that Alexander was a Macedonian which many Greeks refused to call Greeks you also must remember the Romans were surrounded by many much more powerful nations such as the Eustants and many Greek colonies. and Alexanders father had already conquered large portions of Greece he had… Read More
The Romans are famous for many more than three things, but three of them are their military, their laws and the size and longevity of their empire.
Because the Romans took the Greek gods but actually, the Romans had quite a few more gods than the Greeks. At first, the Romans found similarities between the major gods and the number of gods was about the same. However as the Roman empire expanded, they assimilated other cultures' gods into their pantheon and the number mushroomed.
The roman empire is more important than the Greek empire because the roman empire came after the Persian and the greek empire( which are by the way great empires )and took all the great ideas of both empires and made one of their own. Your WELCOME :) I'v been learning about Greeks and Romans, and Greeks were quite sucsefull they had the Greek thinkers and some artists and poets. But Romans were more sucsesfull as… Read More
Did the Greeks in the historical period accept without question the myths as they were handed down by traditions?
It depends on which historical period to which you are referring. It could be said that most Greeks believed in their gods as fervently as most Christians believe in theirs. The more pastoral, the more likely they would believe the myths were real. It is well known that the famous philosophers and other learned people didn't have much faith in the gods, though they frequently invoked them (sound familiar?).
Artemis was known as Artemis to the Greeks and as either Diana or Selene to the Romans.
Philosophers investigated how the human mind worked. To have solidarity, people must have welfare and democracy. The Greeks did that and they laid the foundations for the current democracies. If there is welfare and democracy people will lead better lives and become more social.
A qualified, definitely the Romans. The Romans learned their medical knowledge from the Greeks, but they improved many of the surgical instruments and medicines handed down from the Greeks. Their military hospitals were the most advanced the the ancient world and their types of surgical instruments are still used today. It wasn't until the nineteenth century that "modern" improvements were made in the medical field.
Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle (often referred to as "The Big Three") are considered the Founders of Western Philosophy and arguably the most important philosophical scholars to have ever existed. Other famous Greek philosophers include: Atticus, Epicurus, Hippo, Thales, and Xenophanes. Refer to the related links for more information regarding Ancient Greek philosophers.
No, they were not. There have been merchants in that region for more than 25,000 years. The Hebrews were also not known for being merchants in the Mediterranean. The Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Carthaginians, Arabs, Turks, and Venetians were all much more famous for Mediterranean merchantry than the Hebrews.
The Romans greatly admired the art and architecture of Greece, as well as many of their ideas. Roman art is not really the same as Greek art, but the Romans did copy the Greeks. One notable copy is the column. The Greeks used solid marble 'drums' to build their columns, the Romans built theirs with brick, faced with cement to resemble the Greek columns. .Roman art is more naturalistic and less stylized then Greek art… Read More
The Ancient Greeks created pie pastry so yes the Romans could have eaten pies-not as we know them today-more like a pastry sandwich!
I believe it was because the Greeks did not use arches, thus they need more columns to support the roof structure.
If you are talking about Ancient Greeks than there is a ton of great men, from philosophers to sculptors, playwrights etc... Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras, Aristophanes, Hesiod and more.
I don't see any evidence of this; the Romans executed him and his followers so I think it was the other way around. I don't remember anything about him hating Greeks. ---- A Catholic Answer Jesus was man like us in all things but sin. And we know that to hate anyone is a terrible sin. Therefore, we may be certain that Jesus hated no one. He was no more capable of hating the Romans… Read More
Although most people would probaly say the Greeks, the Romans probaly were. Most people who say Greece are unimformed: They see movies like 300 and think the Greeks are cool They find the idea of Sparta as cool They love Alexander. They don't realise he was Macedonian and that the Greeks refused to call him a Greek. They think the Eastern Roman Empire/ Byzantine empire was inspired by Ancient Greece. But it was actually based… Read More
Romans were more fierce, and more war-like. Greek was more like the opposite of that. Their appearance was also different. They also have different names, but they have the same powers. Romans also have different celebrations than the Greeks.
The Greeks. They worshipped the same gods but under different names. the roman god were more warlike and about respect.
Aristotle was one of the many philosophers who represented the unique way of thinking that the Greeks had. For the first time in history, there was more reason and philosophy behind how the world worked.
Well, in the early BC ages, the Greek Cities Such as Sparta, Athens, and many others were very powerful, but the roman houses the Brutii, the Scipii, and the Julii joined forces to take out the gauls,Greeks,macedonians, and many other nations. During the siege of Sparta, it was about 20,000 soldiers against 2,000 defenders, because the spartan army was out campaigning in Carthage. But reinforcments arrived and lifted the siege. But eventually the Romans did… Read More
Scientists Questioned the old ways of the Greeks and Romans and began Relying more on physical experiments.
Besides the greeks, the romans(who just had different names), the turks, the persians, and surely many more smaller countries
The entertainment between the two peoples differed greatly. The Greeks were more into discussions and conversation at their symposium. The Romans on the other hand preferred visual entertainment such as musicians, dancers, jugglers at their dinners. (This is not to say that the Greeks did not have this type of entertainment, but a loose comparison of the two cultures) Tragedies were popular in Greek theater also sophisticated comedy while the Romans liked bawdy, earthy comedy… Read More
This is easy. The Greeks influenced the Romans in many ways including politics architecture, religion and engineering They affected them by: Religion: The Romans had more warlike versions of the greek gods and ones that were not in greek mythology. Politics: They had senate and a democracy just like greek city-states like Athens. Engineering: Please help by giving your knowledge Architecture: Please help by giving your knowledge
yes. they built aqueducts to ensure that their people had clean water running throughout their city
I don't know exactly who invented it I do know however that in class i was told that the Romans invented it but many of my resources say that the Greeks made it I do not believe this because the Romans where more involved on a mix of war and tech then the Greek's.
In a way, yes. The Greeks developed the theory of the four humours, which the Romans continued, and introduced the follow on theory of opposites. Both empires were observers and spent alot of time observing the sick, and it is easy to think that the Romans only copied the Greeks, because they were the first to discover many theories. The Romans had many more new ideas than the Greeks in terms of medicine; Sanitation, Sewage… Read More
Because the Roman Empire was after the Ancient Greeks, they were very influenced by them. For instance, the Romans kept the Greek architecture, sort of the clothing/apparel, and the Gods. They kept the same Gods from the Greeks, but just changed their names to Latin words. But the Gods didn't stay exactly the same. Most of the Gods and Goddesses from the Romans got more aggressive due to the Empire's war-like culture. Some myths and… Read More
No one "invented" philosophy, philosophy has always existed. The earliest philosophers existed in the earliest civilizations, including Egypt, China, Greece, Mesopotamia, and India. Some of the more famous early philosophers are Confucius (from 6th century BC) and Socrates (from 5th century BC).
theRomans are famous for: laws, education, roads, architecture, medicine and more but i cant be bothered to write them down! peace out dudes!! XxXxX
It is not that the Romans were interested in getting influenced by the Greeks. They just got influenced. Early Latin literature arose out of translating Greek epics, tragedies, and comedies or modelling theirs on those of the Greeks. The Greeks had had a flourishing literature for centuries and it was the best in antiquity. Thus, it is not surprising that the Romans got influenced by this. Greek educators introduced a more evolved type of education… Read More
