Ideas That Shaped Our World
Great Concepts of Then and NowBook - 1997
A timeline of Western thought from 3300 BC (marking writing's development) to AD 1750 (the Enlightenment-era publication of Montesquieu's Spirit of Laws) lays the foundation for a well-illustrated introduction to intellectual milestones of the last 250 years. One wonders if the covered subject areas are in priority order: politics, philosophy and spirituality, human sciences, the arts, and science. Oversize: (9.25x11.50").
