  13. Summary <ul><li>The poleis of Greece in many ways form the beginning of a divergent path of development for the West in classical antiquity. Emerging from the destruction of the palace-based civilizations of the Minoans and Mycenaeans, the Greek poleis created a unique system of political, artistic, and intellectual culture. Their material deficiencies were made up by their cultural achievements, and in many ways we can see ancient Greece as a foundational point for Western civilization </li></ul>
