We currently face unprecedented challenges on a global scale. These problems do not neatly fall into disciplines. They are complicated, complex, and connected. Join us on this epic journey of 13.8 billion years starting at the Big Bang and travelling through time all the way to the future. Discover the connections in our world, the power of collective learning, how our universe and our world has evolved from incredible simplicity to ever-increasing complexity. Experience our modern scientific origin story through Big History and discover the important links between past, current, and future events. You will find two different types of lectures. ‘Zooming In’ lectures from multiple specialists enable you to understand key concepts through the lens of different disciplines, whilst David Christian's ‘Big History Framework’ lectures provide the connective overview for a journey through eight thresholds of Big History.

Лучшие отзывы о курсе BIG HISTORY: CONNECTING KNOWLEDGE
Finally! A creation myth based on evidence and multiple scientific disciplines for all humans is here! The time for stories based on speculation and superstition for the chosen group is finally over.
Very informative, cross and inter-disciplinary course. Lot of effort is put into formulating and developing the course. Thanks for all the people who have contributed to run the course successfully.
I see the world differently now. Lots of interesting and important information that I either never knew or long-ago forgot. I bought the Maps of Time book for reference so I won't forget it again!
I found that this course open my eyes and mind to our very existence in this world. Starting from the beginning of time the Big Bang. Awesome course. Will recommend this course. Thank You.
Superb, exciting course with excellent professors giving out comprehensible knowledge! Very well organized...congratulations.\n\nChanged and enriched the way I see the world!\n\nE.M.
Great course! Tons of information explained in easy to understand terms. Lecturers were, by and large, enthusiastic and engaging. Plenty of extra material provided for further study.
Amazing class! I loved the variety of speakers/teachers. It kept my attention, tied ideas together beautifully, and was incredibly enjoyable. I would highly recommend this class!
A really well structured course filled with rich knowledge and important details. On completion of this course, the meaning of the word 'History' won't be the same again.
I loved this course. the insight it gives into the intricacy of the universe while providing help in critical thinking. I would 100% suggest this to a fellow history guru
An EXCELLENT multi-disciplinary course that provides a though-provoking overview of world history. The videos are interesting, the additional resources fascinating.
Very insightful, entertainment and comprehensive. I strongly encourage it to anyone interested in having a holistic understanding of our Universe and its history.
The course may include a unit on hierarchy , interlinks and patterns which can be observed in every aspect of man made things with respect to nature.\n\nThanking
Fascinating and clear content. A concise to get a glimpse of complete history what matters, starting from big bang to the current complex world we are living in
Gave me a great insight into the different theories of how the world was created and many more. Great course. Very interesting and would strongly recommend.
The course content had met its objectives. I loved the way interdisciplinary sciences were explained precisely from Astronomy to paleontology to economics
Interesting idea to approach everything from an idea of increasing complexity, but due to the nature of the subject they can't really go into any detail.
The lectures are really well made, with nice animations underlining the material. I also enjoy the diversity of topics covered by different teachers.
Fantastic course, well presented, informative, interesting and left me with many questions wanting to know more about our past, present and future!
Very nice overview, but it seemed to be too much information for the limited time. There should be a separate six week course for each threshold.
A great eye opener and excellently presented. The rise of complexity as a driving force of development and evolution was a great learning point.
