Any complex society that has developed a political state, social stratification, urbanization, and symbolic communication methods beyond naturally occurring spoken language is referred to be a civilization (or civilization) (namely, a writing system). Greece is frequently said to as the origin of Western culture and the birthplace of democracy. This is especially true of the Acropolis of Athens. Additional traits including centralization, the domestication of plant and animal species (including humans), labor specialization, culturally imprinted beliefs of progress, monumental architecture, taxation, societal reliance on agriculture, and expansionism are also closely linked to civilizations.
In the past, "a civilization" was frequently thought of as a bigger, purportedly "more sophisticated" culture, in contrast to smaller, supposedly less developed ones. In the broadest sense, a civilization contrasts with non-centralized tribal communities, such as the cultures of nomadically herding livestock, Neolithic societies, or hunter-gatherer societies; yet, on occasion, it also contrasts with the cultures that are found inside civilizations itself. With a ruling elite and subordinate urban and rural populations that participate in intensive agriculture, mining, small-scale manufacturing, and trading, civilizations are structured as densely inhabited communities.
Power is centralized by civilization, which also increases human influence over other aspects of nature, including other people. As its etymology (see below) indicates, the term "civilization" was first connected to towns and cities. The beginning of civilizations is typically dated to the West Asian Neolithic Revolution's later stages, which culminated in a relatively quick process of urban revolution and state formation, a political development linked to the establishment of a ruling elite.
