May be a history question. Try posting it there.
it is a history question, but I'm taking World History and it is apparent that Arabia was.
because of its intellectual acheivements, methods and success track of conquering lands, and trade/use of materials. For instance, they were the first to create libraries, and also they created a written common language for their people. From there they learned translation and thus saved all the Greek and Eastern Asian discoveries/culture etc. they had invented and used algebra among other things.
The Greek Empire.
i would say arabia too
algebra, chemistry was born thru alchemy , astronomy, finances/trade
In terms of influencing world philosophy, I'd say Greece. But if you want to look interms of being "ahead of its time" not necessarily the legacy, I would say ancient India
The ancient empire that built spaceships and left the planet. I heard they were awesome. Way advanced. Too bad the only person who knows anything about them is Art Bell.
China, by far.
