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.
