The Lessons of History af Will Durant (1968)

  1. 00
    Sapiens : en kort historie om menneskeheden af Yuval Noah Harari (ecureuil)
    ecureuil: Somehow a more 'timeless' analysis of humanity's history than the Durants' book, which feels a bit dated.

This is an "old" book, but since it deals with the history of man, what's happened in the 40 years since its original publication and today hasn't changed the original premise. The Durant's have spent a lifetime in the study of man over the course of history, and discuss how his basic nature or instincts influence our modern affairs. ( )

A very deep book, beautifully written with sharp insights from the span of history. An easy read, and warrants re-reading. ( )

What impresses me most with the Durants is their knack for summing up centuries of historical epochs in a succinct, eloquent statement. ( )

At first I was put off by the authors' use of 5 words where 2 would do. "a multitude of doubts assail our enterprise." And, "some young doctor of philosophy in physics...."

But after pressing on I realized this book was like nothing I had read. It is a concise evaluation of how different actions and emotions affect history. It is strongly opinionated, but their opinions are worth wrestling with, as they do not come from a specific side of the political spectrum.

I eventually got used to their verbosity, and even began to appreciate it, and realize how effectively it expressed their ideas. "Communist governments, armed with old birth rates and new weapons...."

Highly recommended, especially for people who like to wrestle with ideas about history. ( )

Short. There's a "lesson" in every chapter. The language dates it a bit, very few people use the word "homosexualism" anymore. In fact, it's so unused these days that LibraryThing's spell checker wouldn't leave it alone. You would think that a smart spell-checker would know enough to avoid spell-checking anything between quotation marks. ( )
