Inhaltsangabe

Certain works of literature, history, science, philosophy, political theory and religion offer powerful examples of how books can spark revolutions, birth great religions, spur scientific advancements, shape world economies, teach us new ways of thinking, and much more. And with this fascinating collection crafted from our extensive library of courses, you can now get a single course that represents 36 of our best lectures on literary works that changed the world.

In the company of an unparalleled roster of award-winning professors from a range of disciplines, you'll get fresh perspectives on books you only thought you knew - and intriguing introductions to some works you may not have known played key roles in getting us to where we are today. These include The Analects, the Liber Abaci, A Dictionary of the English Language, The Jungle, The Feminine Mystique, and more.

If you've taken another course with these professors before, get a reminder of just why you enjoyed them. And if you've never heard some of them before, who knows? You may just discover your next favorite Great Courses professor. More than that, you'll rediscover just how powerful the printed word can be. You'll also learn how the mark of a truly great book isn't that it just changes the lives of individual readers-but the lives of entire civilizations.

    "Not worth the time"

    The series starts absolutely great. The analysis of the Gilgamesh story is deep, entertaining and good. BUT most the other talks are simply uncritical praise of the (ancient) author and his works. The talk about Darwins "Origin of Species" is worst, seems very poorly investigated (e.g. not even mentioning Humboldt as one who had influenced him...)

    One exception worth mentioning is "Don Quixote" which is quiet good and some other 2 or 3 talks. But 6 good (at best) out of 36 is not a good KPI.

    "A very mixed bag"

    This is not a series of lectures by one lecturer, but a compilation of several. This leads to my first criticism: There is no discernable concept behind the selection of the books presented. Also, the lectures more often than not don't stand well on their own, with lecturers referencing their articles to other lectures not in this course. Also, many lectures concern themselves much more with the authors and their times than with the books themselves. Many are good and interesting, but they don't fit the title of the lectures.
    I am also not convinced concerning the selection of texts. Yes, the American revolution was important. But to have 4 out of 36 books concerning themselves with this event seems a little too much. Also, there is - to my continental European mind - too much emphasis on Americana.
    Lastly, while most of the lecturers are very much up to the high standard I have come to expect from this series. the bad few stood out even more prominently.

    It was not really time and money wasted, but I was disappointed for the first time in listening to these courses.
