Inhaltsangabe

What is Western civilization? According to Professor Noble, it is "much more than human and political geography," encompassing myriad forms of political and institutional structures - from monarchies to participatory republics - and its own traditions of political discourse. It involves choices about who gets to participate in any given society and the ways in which societies have resolved the tension between individual self-interest and the common good.

Within this series of 48 lectures, you'll discover the many ways in which Western civilization has addressed those questions, from its first stirrings in the great river valleys of Iraq and Egypt in 3000 B.C to the beginning of the 17th century and the dawn of the modern world. Your learning will cover vast amounts of territory and thousands of years, beginning in the ancient Near East and moving to Greece and then Rome. You'll explore ancient empires, including those of Persia, Alexander the Great, and Rome.

You'll watch as western Europe gradually expands, both physically and culturally. And you'll examine the globalizations of Western civilization with the Portuguese and Spanish voyages of exploration and discovery.

This broad and panoramic series, ripe with the telling detail on which history can turn, will help you pull an enormous sweep of history together into one coherent - though by no means closed - framework as you watch history develop under the influence of such critical factors as ecology and environment, geography, and climate; government and economics; technology; religion; work and leisure; philosophy; literature; art and architecture; and virtues, values, and aesthetics.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Geschichte
    "very interesting overview"

    it concentrates especially on the philosophical changes rather than on single characters. this gives an entertaining overview and a bases to dig deeper into special areas of interest.

    at the beginning the speaker was pretty challenging. first impression made him look like an annoying "know it all". But after the first chapters, I came to like and even enjoying him.

    it helps, when you turn the speed of the tape 1 percent slower. so the chance to follow his thoughts during the multiple alterations in speaking speed during one sentence is significantly higher.

    I'm looking forward to his next edition

    "Clear, interesting, and important."

    I think this kind of audiobooks would be even more useful if parents made their children listen to them. They may need such a structured overview at an early age to understand history at school and later on in life.

    "Toller Überblick über die Entwicklung des Westens"

    Ein sehr informatives Hörbuch mit einem sympathischen Sprecher. Ich habe viel gelernt und jedes einzelne Kapitel sehr genossen. Die Begleit-PDF ist ebenfalls ausgezeichnet.
