Aristotle, inventor of formal logic, a foundation of mathematics and science, considered by the author of the book Human Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950 to possibly be the most important innovation ever made.

Ancient Greece was a civilization originating in Greece, following invasions/colonizations by Indo-Europeans, and spreading to other areas around the Mediterranean Sea in association with trade, colonies, and conquests.

The influence of Ancient Greece, in part through its influence of Ancient Rome, on Western civilization is enormous.

There are various less politically correct views on Ancient Greece, on issues such as race and the causes of the initial success and later decline. See the "External links" section.
