Greeks offered most aspects of civilization to the world. They first of all offered Logic (see Aristotle and his monumental masterpieve "Το Όργανον") and Philosophy. Most modern philosophical currents are based either on Plato or Aristotle. A non-complete list of things Greeks have offered to the world includes geometry (see Euclid), medicine (see Hippokratis), theatre (see Aesclylus), mathematics (see Thales), astronomy (see Aristarhos), language (all languages are based on Greek - see relative articles for Greek words existing by the thousands in all modern languages), music (see the Pythagorean system of numbers-in-music), democracy (see Pericles).
