The Foundations of Western Civilization (Audiobook) By Professor Thomas F.X. Noble
2002 | 25 hours and 11 mins | ISBN: 1565855345 | MP3 64 kbps | 735 MB

You can discover the essential nature, evolution, and perceptions of Western civilization from its humble beginnings in the great river valleys of Iraq and Egypt to the dawn of the modern world.

With these 48 lectures on the people, places, ideas, and events that make up The Foundations of Western Civilization, award-winning scholar and teacher Thomas F. X. Noble of the University of Notre Dame invites you to explore the vast and rich territory of Western civilization.

Grasp History over Thousands of Years
From the late stages of the Agricultural Revolution to the doorstep of the Scientific Revolution, your learning in this course will cover roughly 3000 B.C. to A.D. 1600, when the "foundations" of the modern West come into view.

Professor Noble's goal is to offer a history of what has been fundamental across millennia in the West, that most unusual of world civilizations.

"Throughout the course, we will pause to reflect on where Western civilization finds its primary locus at any given moment," he says. "But Western civilization is much more than human and political geography.

"We will explore the myriad forms of political and institutional structures by means of which Western peoples have organized themselves and their societies. These include monarchies of several distinct types, as well as participatory republics.

"Looking at institutions will draw us to inquire about the Western tradition of political discourse. Who should participate in any given society? Why? How have societies resolved the tension between individual self-interest and the common good?"

Your learning will follow a timeline and order to cover vast amounts of territory and thousands of years:
  • Begin in the ancient Near East and move to Greece, then to Rome
  • Explore the shape and impact of large ancient empires, including those of Persia, Alexander the Great, and Rome
  • Consider Western Europe to watch Europe gradually expand physically and culturally
  • Examine the globalization of Western civilization with the Portuguese and Spanish voyages of exploration and discovery.
