Big History: The Big Bang, Life on Earth, and the Rise of Humanity

by David Christian

Historian David Christian’s enthusiasm enlivens the Epic of Evolution in these video lectures. In this set of 48 lectures from The Teaching Company, Christian gives a clear and concise overview of Big History. 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.
