The Similarities between Mesopotamia and Greek Inventions. As civilization as developed through time, many inventions have emerged and has caught the world’s attention, two if the most interesting, being the inventions of the Ancient Mesopotamia and Greek. Based on the history of Ancient Greek, Ancient Greek civilization began in the 8th century B.C and has been traced back to Stone Age hunters. While the Ancient Mesopotamia is a land between two rivers which are the Tigris and Euphrates River, and it was believed to have been in effect in the 7th century AD. Furthermore, as far as art is concerned, we find that the Mesopotamians were involved in great structures and architecture, while the Greeks were more involved in creating smaller pieces
Without their ability to read and write, along with their location which allowed them to communicate with other diverse cultures, modern philosophers, mathematicians, and scientists would not have the records of ancient Greek philosophies. Of course, many other cultures from around the world have impacted modern philosophy in some way. However, they did not come into the situation until far later than the Greeks. All in all, the ancient Greeks do not get enough credit for all they have done for not only the ancient world, but the modern world as well. Although some of their ideas and philosophies have since been proven wrong, even their most seemingly ridiculous theories helped develop the philosophies and science we know
Other sculptures displayed human action,mainly athletics. Myron’s Discus Thrower is a sculpture of Artemis. The Greek painted,but not much of their work remains.In conclusion, I have learned that Greek Goddesses were and still are a central part of Ancient Greece. Today, in many different ways the Greeks worship them. There is art and architecture that was created in their image.
Most of the time only the rich could afford to have their clothes tailored. This is because it could take “several fittings a month” (Source 2. 6) just to get a coat made. This was not the case when tailoring first started out however. When tailoring first started out people often had to be sewn into their clothes making getting dressed difficult.
The Mayans were people with no central government, and yet individuals worked hard to complete buildings for the whole community. The citizens of Mayan cities followed orders from higher political powers, which organized the work and maintenance of these places. (Doc B) The effort put into building these cities must have been unimaginable. The Mayans worked hard to construct many places without the luxury of having a previously established government and system to command over the people. Another reason why the Mayan cities were great is the amount of them discovered- Today, over 2,500 cities have been found, and all of them were built by people who worked with little rest to complete each building in 2-3 months.
She was extremely important in ancient Greek mythology and for this reason was often used throughout ancient Greek artwork such as pottery, paintings, literature and sculptures. It was common to see differences in the way Aphrodite was portrayed in each individual art piece as the ancient Greeks believed she changed her appearance for every person so that she looked ideal and attractive to them. Much of this artwork displayed the goddess fully clothed until around 400 B.C when she began being illustrated naked. Aphrodite’s depiction in paintings was similar in some aspects and extremely different in others. Many paintings of the goddess display Aphrodite as “a highly attractive
Part2 My example of Political Economy in the text book is on pg 169 in 'The STRUCTURE OF ARCHAIC STATES '. “The Archaic Greeks were relatively weak as a social class , so were the institutions of the states they controlled.” Pg169. They didnt have modern government agenicies to control finances so they used Oligarchs and Tyrants to take responsibility to pay for war and religion. The Oligarchs and Tyrants were more worried about war and religion allowances than making and saving money for infrastructures such as roads, bridges, and buildings, things that would allow more people to want to come and actually to be apart of there society and help boost the economy. They spent more money on religion than they did war.
During Westward Expansion farmers fell victims to the low pricing of the crops. Most farmers struggled to make a living due to key issues. There was often a high tax on railroads which had cut a large profit from the farmers. The farmers had no other option other than the railroad since the farmers were often very far off westward in the Great Plains, while the market with a large population was still in eastern cities like New York. Likewise farmers had to pay a middle man in the East to sell their commodities in the East, because the poor farmers were unable to travel all the way to the East to sell their products then come back to start farming for the next year.
The staff that stayed over got overloaded with the work, which caused the high turnover. La Alianza couldn’t afford to pay higher salaries to retain the staff, due to the low rates of reimbursements from the DSS. The inexperienced and newly graduated case workers had a heavy caseload. The newly graduated case workers failed to find the basic investigation details, such as if parents were lying, or if children were being abused or not. In addition, DSS required time-consuming paperwork with the extremely heavy workload.
For there is not a single polis that need not import or export-[Xenophon of Athens] Many civilizations at one point in their history had an institution that facilitated the exchange of resources. The Greeks were no different. Trade was not the immediate solution to the challenge of transferring goods and services in Greece. In fact, a lot of exchange occurred between the different polies as a result of political fragmentation and unequal distribution of wealth. This caused each polis to invariably establish some unique form of exchange.
