What was the Hellenistic?

Hellenistic philosophy comes from a late period in Greek history which saw the greatest variety of philosophic schools. There is no single tenant of "helenistic philosophy" as it ranges from platonic forms to the cynics to Pythagoras.

They trade to make sense of myths and traditions using the newly formed mathematics, social ethics, morality. As a result, many religions found themselves evolving under the Hellenistic microscope, not so much abandoning faith, as trying to find solid reason for it. This would later be revived in Christianity as the apologetics movement.
