Here is a compendium of everything that humankind has thought, invented, created, considered and perfected from the beginning of civilization into the twenty-first century. Massive in its scope and yet totally accessible, A History of Knowledge covers not only all the great theories and discoveries of the human race, but also explores the social conditions, political climates, and individual men and women of genius that brought ideas to fruition throughout history.

You'll find capsule portraits of the people whose thinking has shaped our world through their contributions to art, science, literature, and world history: Buddha, Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, Aristotle, Edison, Shakespeare, George Eliot, and dozens more. In surveying the great world civilizations, A History of Knowledge also explains such essentials as the Greek ideal of justice, how Columbus's discoveries led to the African slave trade, the political and social conditions that sparked the invention of the scientific method, and many other key movements and concepts that have continuing relevance today. Indeed, readers who crave a single all-inclusive reference volume to intellectual history will find themselves dipping into indispensable A History of Knowledge again and again.
