What would Old Europe look like without the godlike Platon? and the astounding Kant?

Irene replies

Mmm, given that Old Europe wound up with some pretty major family feuds, it
doesn't seem like they could have done much worse without them.

That's right. What has Europe ever done for us? Asides from the aquaducts? And the science? The philosophy? And the art, music, and literature? Asides from all that, what has Europe ever done for us?
