    Ideas That Shaped Mankind flows from internationally respected historian Felipe Fernández-Armesto's views on the notion that man's capacity to produce ideas in itself brings about sweeping changes in the world. This ability, seen most profoundly in individual, startling moments of genius - or equally startling moments of chance - is what separates humans from the animals and allows humans to re-imagine the world in ever more complex designs.

    Ross Bennett says: "Brilliant survey of human thought"
    "horrible"
    Overall

    "and that [pause] how [pause] you begin to construct [pause] a universe that makes sense [pause]" No substance whatsoever. The author makes random inferences and shifts from one trivial idea to another without anything real to say.
