The Influence of Ancient Greek Culture on Animal Names

Greek culture and philosophy lie at the foundation of modern society. Often, we don't even realize how many everyday ideas have their roots in Greek philosophical tradition.

Not to mention that the word "encyclopedia" itself derives from the Greek language.

Soldiers and animals

During the war, I returned a few times to the novel I read in childhood called “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” later adapted into “Blade Runner" movie.
