The original creativity of Greece on people-oriented thought and philosophical thinking, scientific spirit, Democracy and the spirit of art and literature laid the foundation of western civilization. Roman has important historical contribution to the global spread of Greek culture. Ancient Rome made the Greek ideas of the small area to become a global thought by the extension of the empire and the spread of culture. In other words, Ancient Rome made Greece worldwide. If there is no the spread of Roman, Philosophy is still only regional thoughts in ancient Greece.(Tamás Adamik, 1990)
The ancient Roman gave birth to the " the spirit of world" of the west，and it has its advancement and limits. Because the spread of the culture of Roman, the savage Romans did not make society into a permanent darkness, while it made the western hemisphere bright. (Brad Inwood, Fred D. Miller Jr, 2007) Certainly, the expansion also has other profound ideas. In Rome people's concepts, the Roman Empire belonged to the whole world essentially. Subsequently this view was spread to the Christian church, so Christian also took itself as Catolicismo surpassing Buddhism and Islam. The ancient Rome spread the global idea to become the logic that the globalization is equal to the wholesale westernization.
In short, Roman played an important role in the development of western culture. The development of all aspects of western culture almost originated from Roman. To some extent, without Roman, Western culture will not develop, or to the purpose it will not develop so rapidly and completely.
