For the purposes of presenting the Hellenic achievements in the Sciences, we have loosely defined the Sciences as the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world. Like our definition of the Arts, it is a pretty broad definition. But it too reflects the very nature of the Hellenic obsession with the the detail, beauty and majesty of the world around us. This obsession resulted in scientific advancements that were, at the time, completely out of the scope of human thought. For clarity, we have divided the Sciences into two major categories. Within each category is a collection of sub-categories from which to begin your exploration of the Hellenic journey into the Sciences. . .
The Natural Sciences is the branch of science that deals with the study of the physical world.

The Social Sciences is the branch of science that deals with the institutions and functioning of human society and with the interpersonal relationships of individuals as members of society.
