    What is Western Civilization? According to Professor Noble, it is "much more than human and political geography," encompassing myriad forms of political and institutional structures - from monarchies to participatory republics - and its own traditions of political discourse. It involves choices about who gets to participate in any given society and the ways in which societies have resolved the tension between individual self-interest and the common good.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Foundations of Western Civilization again? Why?

    This question is not applicable to this title or most other audio courses. Would listen to other courses by this professor.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Foundations of Western Civilization?

    Sections covering the Greek and Roman cultures, including the decline of Rome, were especially interesting.


    What does Professor Thomas F. X. Noble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good, enthusiastic speaker. Well organized and he makes clear the main, take-away points, which is so important for an audio course.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    History of the World Part I ... Maybe Monty Python and the Holy Grail
