BIG HISTORY: THE BIG BANG, LIFE ON EARTH, AND THE RISE OF HUMANITY
BY DAVID CHRISTIAN
The enthusiasm of historian David Christian is palpable as he makes Big History come alive in these video talks. In this set of 48 lectures from The Teaching Company, Christian gives an overview of Big History, also known as the Epic of Evolution. Christian has the amazing gift of describing complex ideas about cosmology, thermodynamics, economics, and world history in a way that is clear and awe-inspiring. I highly recommend this series of videos to everyone who wants to know where they came from so as to better understand where they might be going.
