    Inhaltsangabe

    Beginning with the Renaissance, the culture of the West exploded. Over the next 600 years, rapid innovations in philosophy, technology, economics, military affairs, and politics allowed what had once been a cultural backwater left by the collapse of the Roman Empire to dominate the world.

    This comprehensive series of 48 lectures by an award-winning teacher and captivating lecturer will show you how - and why - this extraordinary transformation took place.

    As you listen to the series, you'll begin to grasp not only the history of Western civilization, but the meaning of civilization itself, as this grand narrative of the past five centuries creates a coherent context for the period's events and trends, and offers an analysis of what these five centuries have bequeathed to us. Lecture by lecture, you'll explores the ideas, events, and characters that modeled Western political, social, religious, intellectual, cultural, scientific, technological, and economic history between the 16th and 20th centuries. You'll learn how Western civilization was shaped by the low as well as the mighty, the practical as well as the artistic. You'll gain a larger understanding of the political, social, and cultural events that shaped Europe. And you'll explore the ramifications of these epoch-making events on the rest of the world, including the United States.

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

    Almost as good as part 1

    I really loved the first part of the "Foundations of Western Civilization" course. It was a well-rounded approach to the history of western civilizations, and very enjoyable to listen to. The same is true of this audio book. However, be aware that this book is presented by an American for other Americans. As someone from Germany, I am a little sad that there is so much more focus on Britain and France than on (what would become) Germany. I can understand this and will not give less stars because of it. However, I think it is something you might want to know before buying this audio book.

    Brillant in it's own right

    The title suggests that this audiobook is a continuation of the lectures of Prof. Noble. I strongly disagree with this notion. This book is a history of Europe from the perspective of an American scholar. Foundations of Western Civilization I is the story of western (i. e. European) thinking embedded in the flow of history till 1500. Foundations of Western Civilization II is the story of European history with references to western thinking since 1500. But as such it is one of the best history books I have ever heard or read! And Prof. Bucholz is a wonderful speaker. It is just a pleasure to listen to him. Last remark: I felt very touched by his epilog
