Western Civilization II

Rating: No Rating (Comment only)
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Arthur Finkle (Faculty), Oct 09, 2012

The content omits the numerous seminal ideas below but is not limited to my inventory. They do, however, represent the social, political and economic ideas that the content submission wishes to cover. Nonetheless, it does not include the intellectual (philosophical, social history, and some esthetic contributions) of Western Civilization for the period selected.


More than that, there is a serious omission of ANYTHING that the Americas contributed to Western Civilization from the Enlightenment (1650 to 1700 sparked by philosophers Baruch Spinoza (1632–1677), John Locke (1632–1704), Pierre Bayle (1647–1706), physicist Isaac Newton (1643–1727), and philosopher Voltaire (1694–1778) to 1999)

Technical Remarks:

Excellent. Not only did it identify the best browser, it indicated that the program will not work in Safari, unless Firefox 1.5 is installed.

It even provided viewers to Microsoft Office for those who either did not have MS applications or did not have the latest version of MS Office.
