HELLAS

" In all history, nothing is so surpassing or so difficult to account for as, the

sudden rise of the civilization in Hellas. Much of what makes civilization had

already existed of thousand of years in Egypt and in Mesopotamia, and had

spread thence to neighboring countries. But certain elements had been

lacking, until the Hellenics supplied them. What they achieved in art and

literature is familiar to everybody, but what they did in the purely intellectual

realm is even more exceptional."

(Bertrand Russell, History of the western philosophy)
