What is the single most influential culture in history?
civilization started independently in multiple different places. Mesopotamia, Old Europe, China, and the New World. The question is which of those civilizations had the most impact on those that came after.
As an ethnic group jews are very influential. As a culture - no, nobody knows or cares much about judaism, jewish traditions, etc. The most influence jews had has been from the middle ages till now and only in european countries while being assimilated into european societies/cultures.
Hollywood is American culture, not jewish
Murica is the easy answer but prolly western civilization in general really
>Any other answer then Roman
The direct influence of Rome effects the world to this day
>new cultures don't arise from old ones
Fucking retard, technically "caveman culture" would be the most influential from your perspective
The culture that had the most influence on history? Rome.
The culture that has the most influence in the present day? America.
despite the fact that they're long washed-up, definitely the Greeks. Anyone who says otherwise hasn't realized the sheer volume of work from throughout Greek history, which doesn't include what's been lost over time
>POLITICAL IDEALS TIER
All the Holocaust and WW2 threads up right now kinda reminded me of how influential Jewish culture was on the world. It affected all of Europe and the Middle East, Central Asia, Africa, and parts of South Asia. I don't think it's the most influential though because it wasn't independently created. I think it'd have to go to ancient Mesopotamia
