  1. Naturally, these are different periods in the history of philosophy. In general, the difference is about the same as between ancient Greek mathematics and modern mathematics. Of course, ancient philosophy already asks many eternal questions, but not all of them. And, more importantly, not all questions are relevant to her. Let us assume that the question of language becomes relevant only in the middle of the XX century with the emergence of analytical philosophy and structuralism. For the ancient Greeks, issues of aesthetics, politics, and ethics were more important.

    There is also a difference in what problems are relevant and obvious for a particular period. The ancient Greeks talked about ethics, but they didn't talk about moral luck and neuro-chauvinism. There is also a noticeable difference in how the answers are given. Now, for example, when talking about human nature, philosophers take into account the research of neuroscience and psychology, and do not answer only on the basis of their observations. What, for example, Aristotle could afford. And this does not even mean that his observations are necessarily wrong, just that we now have more positions from which we can describe human nature.

  2. How can you judge what is not there, what philosophy you are talking about. Currently, there are groups of people who study ancient Greek philosophy, look for something in it that they did not lose there and make a smart face when playing poorly. Philosophy is a forward view, but we all look back and flaunt the knowledge of other people's thoughts. This is not philosophy, this is plagiarism!!! This is my personal opinion. With respect.

  3. Greek philosophy sought to develop wisdom by creating a theoretical science through dialectics and logic (analytics). Its traditions were continued by medieval philosophers who synthesized dialectics and logic into dialectical logic. The” secularization ” of philosophy according to Marx was the reason for the rejection of classical philosophy by modern European philosophers, who broke the continuity with it. Modern “philosophers” do not develop methods of theorizing the sciences (cognitive science), considering any gibberish as a theory. They are not actually philosophers, but Philodoxi, about whom Socrates spoke and wrote and. Edging.

  4. Well, this is quite a difficult question. Let's turn to the word itself initially. “Philosophy” is love, precisely love, for knowledge, precisely for knowledge. Now look inside yourself. Have you brought a lot of knowledge to this World? Do you truly possess many things? And what is the source of your “knowledge”?

  5. There was never any ancient Greek philosophy. There was nothing to write on and nothing to write on. That incredible amount of work is simply attributed to these ancient Greeks by delusional medieval visionaries. All this philosophy was invented in the Middle Ages after the appearance of paper, when it was possible to dirty it unmeasurably. But since the church was dead, the authors attributed their works to some ancient philosophers. At the same time, the following nuance is noted: in the Middle Ages, it didn't matter what the philosopher did there, it was important who he was. If it is an authority recognized by the church, then it is the truth, and if it is not known to anyone , then it is a lie. So medieval dissidents attributed their thoughts to all sorts of fictional personalities like Aristotle, Plato, Socrates, etc. to phantoms.

  6. Of course there is, but still there are many similarities between Greek and modern philosophy. Modern philosophy is the successor of ancient Greek and in general it is the ancestor of European philosophy, while significantly differing from the Eastern one.

    Ancient Greek philosophy was formed on the basis of:

    • transition from the tribal system to a special type of political structure – a polis where democracy reigned;

    – turning knowledge work into a special type of activity;

    • development of scientific knowledge, trade and crafts;
      All this formed a free personality with their own views on life with the right to their own opinion.

    People began to strive to understand the world around them through the mind. Although the belief in the gods continued to persist, new questions arose: why it happens this way, what is the cause of a certain phenomenon, what is the truth.

    Isn't this what modern philosophy is now studying and promoting? Undoubtedly, knowledge and knowledge are moving forward, people have succeeded in many ways, but I still think that ancient Greek philosophy can be considered the grain from which modern philosophy has grown.
