The introduction of the Greek letters into inscription somewhere around 700 B.C. was to alter the character of human culture, placing a gulf between all alphabetic societies and their precursors. The Greeks did not just invent an alphabet, they invented literacy and the literate basis of modern thought ….It is no accident that the prealphabetic cultures of the world were also in a large sense the pre-scientific cultures, pre-philosophical and pre-literary.
Consider just one aspect or element of this broad claim. On the basis of the speciﬁc evidence presented by Havelock and Gough, would you say it is largely true, largely false, or true in some respects?
