Who knows which people were the first to consider philosophy? It's not about who was the first, I think all will agree that the body of philosophical works left to us by the Greeks was much larger than that left by the Egyptians. What Egyptian philosophy influences (or has influenced) our society?Id like to argue that the Greeks didn't originate philosophy but rather it was the Egyptians.
So if philosophy is the sole reason on influence, then Egypt would be the winner.
I voted Greece though, cause thats who I actually think influenced the most.
But anyway, this is discussion of 2 societies only, Greece and Rome, specifically about which was the most influential.
