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)
