From the Neolithic Revolution to Sir Duke Grande III
Period of time when nomadic hunter-gatherers settled in river valleys to domesticate plants and animals. They produced surplus food and began to trade, develop hierarchy, produce a soldier class which engaged in warfare and built empires. The steady food source resulted in longer lives.
Period when mature societies were more urban and people began to consider questions about their existence, like "what happens after I die?" This led to a growing concern about morality. It's the period of time when Hinduism and Judaism reform--the priest caste become less important, and the role that average people have to follow ethical rules is more important. The Torah--a moral document is written. Dharma in Hinduism is stressed. Buddhism develops the 8-fold path. Moral philosophies in China develop--Daosim, Confucianism and Legalism. Ancient Greek philosophy develops ideas about democracy and a good society. The ground work for Christianity, and later Islam, is set.
