Big History

"I first heard about “Big History” after Bill Gates recommended a book by the same title by Cynthia Stokes Brown, and I read about his interest in turning this field into a broader basis for the instruction of history itself. I read the book and was blown away.

Big History is essentially a perspective of examining history in the broadest context possible: that of the universe. It “begins” with cosmology, the Big Bang, and continues through the formation of stars and planets, to the Earth itself, and then to the formation of life, all the way up to mammals, humans and, eventually, ancient Egypt, Rome, the Titanic and Dancing With The Stars."
