Natural philosophy ended up creating a disagreement among people across greek society, as some believed that reason should be widely accepted, and to examine how we became is worthwhile, where others believed that we are who we are and that reason is not worthwhile. Then a third group decided that God, Fate, and Nature should all be seen as one entity. This group was known as Stoics, a large reason why they accepted this is because they believed "most people used fate as opposite of responsibility and used as an excuse" (Darty, 3). This is understandable because if people believe that they are on a predetermined path then they will question why they have to work hard since everything that happens will just happen.
After Alexander the Great's rule, his large greek empire was separated into kingdoms, all of which were ruled under a king as possession, and therefore had political unity as opposed to there being open discussion. This made the spread of Hellenism difficult as there were essentially multiple greek cultures, making the expansion difficult.
