    The Map of Knowledge ePUB ☆ The Map ePUB Â knowledge kindle, The Map kindle, The Map of Knowledge ePUBThere was a program on PBS when I was in middle or high school that was I think produced in the UKlike most really good science programs The program was called Connections and it would take a subject and connect all the historical dots as to how it came about and sometimes the connections between historical figures objects cities places concepts and moments would be really obscure Who knew for example that there was a connection between the modern concept of credit and Napoleon's problem of feeding a large army and the development of refrigerationThe Map of Knowledge is like thisI found myself riveted I and I think many of us in the public school system in the US got basic world history in high school This was usually a discrete set of historical moments that were never really connected for you in the classroom except to know that these things happened in chronological order usually from some arbitrary oldest topic to some point closer to the present day There was ancie

    The Map of Knowledge ePUB ☆ The Map ePUB Â knowledge kindle, The Map kindle, The Map of Knowledge ePUBI was very disappointed in this as I was expecting a lot and for it to be a lot interesting Instead it reads like a Wikipedia page The author bends over backwards to point out that the Muslim world was keeping the light on in the sciences during Christian Europe’s Dark AgesFirst of all I was fully aware of the contribution to scholarship in the Arab world during the centuries of their short lived dominance I studied Arabic and the Muslim world for many years Her exuberance to inform the ignorant of the Arab achievements at times seemed to be unnecessary cheerleading or a lecture on political correctness She points out again and again the lack of medical education in Europe during the centuries between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance but what did a

    The Map of Knowledge ePUB ☆ The Map ePUB Â knowledge kindle, The Map kindle, The Map of Knowledge ePUBMoller traces the history of Galen Euclid and Ptolemy as their ideas are first written down then fostered in the Middle East and re introduced to Midevil Europe at the start of the RenissanceLimiting the scope of Classical transmission to these men and not including say Aristotle seems a bit odd interesting trivia Aristotle was the first person known to have a private collection of books But I'm actually disappointed in Moller's focus on telling the story of the transcription efforts instead of the intellectual history of how these authors' ideas transformed over time So much of this book was focused on biographic

    The Map of Knowledge ePUB ☆ The Map ePUB Â knowledge kindle, The Map kindle, The Map of Knowledge ePUBA very interesting book that answered a question that I now wonder why I never thought to ask it what happened to all the science and philosophy of the ancient world during the thousand years of the Dark Ages when in most of Europe Christianity was keen on banning and burning such pagan thoughts? How come so many of them were still available and alive in some form or other when the Renaissance came about?This book provides the answer in form of a journey telling us the stories of individuals who were significant for the upholding and thriving of knowledge in their respective times and placesMost significantly it clears up some false illusions and shows us how significant the Islamic world was for science in the middle ages even though these authors have later often been neglected to be mentioned or have been Latinised It also explains why this step may have been necessary to bring important knowledge especially about medic

    The Map of Knowledge ePUB ☆ The Map ePUB Â knowledge kindle, The Map kindle, The Map of Knowledge ePUBIn The Map of Knowledge Violet Moller traces the transmission of knowledge from the ancient Mediterranean via the Abbasid and Umayyad caliphates and centuries of scholars and translators from 500 CE to the European Renaissance This summary might sound a little dry but Moller’s semi conversational style and the content made her overview of a thousand years of history highly readable Outside of academia I don’t know that many people know how much of a debt we Westerners owe to the
