Big Ideas in Brief: 200 World-Changing Concepts Explained in an Instant
by Ian Crofton Author and In Minutes Series Editor
Want a classical education, in brief? Or just to know what authors and experts are talking about or what assumptions underlie their ideas? Get schooled here on the big ideas in philosophy, religion, science, politics, economics, society, and art. Illustrated two page spreads cover concepts as broad-ranging as empiricism, electromagnetism, labor, anthropology, pacifism, paradoxes, democracy, surrealism, and the soul. No deep dives, but these clear and objective descriptions will give you a good sense of what is out there to know in a western education and what you may want to explore more deeply. A good gift for a teen who wants to challenge themselves and explore potential avenues of study, or an adult who wishes they'd had access to this knowledge at a younger age.
