Which was a better empire Rome or Greece
Debate Rounds (3)
Greece was not an empire, so this entire discussion is null and void.
However, if you wish to debate which 'civilization' was 'better', I am happy to do so, but first, you will need to define what you mean by 'better'; otherwise this is just a statement of opinion and there is nothing to debate upon.
Okay well, this still wasn't very specific and as the instigator, I feel that you should be presenting your arguments for Greece first. I want to first clarify what I mean when I say you haven't outlined your argument in order to give you one last opportunity to do so before I begin my argumentation.
Your Arguments for the Greeks Thus Far:u
Literature: The works of Socrates, Plato & Aristotle
Society: Philosophical Superiority (Socrates, Plato & Aristotle)
Technology: You presented no argumentation as to why the Greeks excelled the Romans in technology.
Literature: While I would like to state that philosophy is not literature, that in itself warrants an entirely new debate. Thus, I will confine myself as to why the works of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle alone, cannot be considered as literature and therefore, they cannot be included in this category.
Social: In this category is where I would put philosophy. You mentioned three Greek philosophers: Socrates, Aristotle and Plato, yet you never mentioned why they were 'great'. This is a subjective term, and cannot be used as evidence. Upon my argument, I will be listing some Roman philospohers and why their philosophies were superior. Please do the same.
I will come to the issue of Democracy upon my argumentation in the next slot, but as I said, in the interests of having a good debate, I am giving you this one last opportunity to present evidence and argumentation rather than opinion.
Checklist for Your Next Post:
Did you include argumentation on all three of the following topics?
2.Did You include verifiable evidence rather than merely opinion?
3.Did you include this evidence in your sourcing?
4.Did you make a comparative against Roman equivalents in any capacity?
5.Did you quantify and/or qualify this comparison with facts, rather than opinion?
Thanks again, and hopefully this debate turns around.
