Anatolian Hall of Fame in Steps of Alexander the Great:

This is a tour for those who are curious about the philosophical, scientific and historic past of our world. Where we “were” and where are we “now”? Humanity wonders whether we have progressed from the cave age on or … not!... Follow Alexander's steps through Anatolia as he conquers the cities one by one and learn what the elder masters thought of the Earth, existence, human nature and life as a whole together with him.
Those early intellectuals shaped the world.
Why can't we step in the same river twice?
Are we all wicked?
What are the deeds of a “good human”?
Learn who said “atom” first ever.
What went on in the Agoras then? 
What was Alexander's favor to Diogenes?
