On page 178 of "What is Life" Schrödinger quotes John Burnet who said, "....it is an adequate description of science to say that it is 'thinking about world in the Greek way.'"

For those who claim there is no ancient science, I have two questions:

 

1. When, exactly, did science begin? Please be specific and concise- 5 sentences or less.
2. Is saying "there was no ancient science" like saying "there was no ancient business?" Business today didn't exist in the ANE. Today it is thousands (or millions) times more complicated. Today we have world markets, derivatives, high-speed computer stock trading, board of directors, stock, bonds, futures, commodities, mortgages, various forms of debt (home equity, credit card, reverse mortgage, etc).

 

My point, there was ancient science just like there was ancient business, but the "memes" for each have considerably evolved.
