IDEAS THAT SHAPED MANKIND A Concise History of Human Thought

by | Read by Felipe Fernández-Armesto

History • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2004

The key to success in an audio course is the author’s enthusiasm. Professor Fernández-Armesto has it in spades. It helps too that the instructor is widely knowledgeable, with many academic and popular writings to his credit. As he expounds on the history of ideas, one hears a rich British accent full of expression. He takes the listener from the earliest beginnings of human thought, from the concept of an idea itself, to the modern era, both political and intellectual. Each of the 14 lectures is a half-hour long, perfect for a learning-filled commute. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
