First Paragraph

Think about why we are fascinated by history. All of those outstanding individuals and exotic peoples. The rise and fall of civilizations - and wondering why that happens. How did classical Greece achieve its Golden Age - the age of Socrates and Pericles, Euripides and Hippocrates? What explains the remarkable confluence of so many outstanding individuals in one era?
