Babylonians and Egyptians used geometry mostly for practical purposes and did very little to develop it as a systematic science.
But in civilisations like Greece, the emphasis was on the reasoning behind why certain constructions work.
The Greeks were interested in establishing the truth of the statements they discoveorange using deductive reasoning (pp. 78-79).
