Museums, temples to the Muses, goddesses of arts and sciences, were created as places of learning in the Alexandrias. Philosophers like Plato challenged the established ways of thinking.
Math and Science
Plato claimed that, in general, men surpassed women in most physical tasks, but that some women were superior to men at mental tasks. He believed that the talented, regardless of gender, were the ones who had a place in his elite.
Even after his death, Alexander still held great influence across the entire continent. His conquest led to an immense spread of Greek culture, and his many established cities, all named Alexandria, still stood.
Legacy of Alexander the Great
In around 400 BC, the Greek Physician Hippocrates made great strides in finding cures and identifying the causes of illnesses. His legacy is carried on even today, with the Hippocratic oath being a necessity for certified doctors.
During Alexander's rule, the Greek culture was spread across all of the continent, and as the Hellenistic Age began, the culture continued to thrive as new generations learned about the ways of the past.
Sculpture and mosaics were some of the most famous types of Greek and Roman art, and coliseums built for sport and study were commonplace.
