A Note on Greek Philosophy

One of the oddities of reading 
The old Greek Philosophers is that 
They rarely commented on the beauty 
Of their own country. 

I love Geometry as much as the next person, 
And I do mathematics for a living, 
But it seems a strange omission to have 
Whole theories of aesthetics that never mention 
The actual world

  1. They lived in stories and believed in theories which were inspired from reality. But, reality everyone knew as per them. That’s a clue.
