    The Western Tradition is a free series of videos that traces the arc of western civilization. Starting in Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, the survey proceeds to cover the Byzantine Empire and Medieval Europe, then the Renaissance, Enlightenment, and Industrial Revolution, and finally ends up in 20th century Europe and America. Based on a conference at the Leibniz Institute in Mainz, the book, as the title suggests, is not a purely conceptual history of the term “humanity.” [1] Rather it looks to discover “the concrete implications of theoretical discourses on the concept of humanity.”.

    History of Enlightenment philosophy. The boundaries of the Enlightenment cover much of the 17th century as well, though others term the previous era "The Age of Reason."For the present purposes, these two eras are split; however, it is equally acceptable to think of them conjoined as one long period.. Throughout the s and half of the s, Europe was ravaged by religious wars. This course will survey art and architecture made from the Late Gothic in Italy through the Enlightenment. We will focus on turning points in the historical narrative including the rise of Florence and Siena, the Reformation and its impact on Baroque art in Catholic and Protestant Europe, the scientific revolution, and the political revolutions.
