In their Own Time – Thinkers and Ideas in Historical Context – Part 2

Kevin Harrison, Martin Jervis, Andrew Jones,  Alan Sennett

“Revolution was never sparked by political philosophy. It has ever been the price of bread that shakes the pillars of the world. Yet they lock up the thinkers and leave the bakers free.” 
― Rod DuncanUnseemly Science

This course examines the significant figures (for better or worse) within their own times, hopefully enabling us to assess the political and cultural impact upon the 20th Century and beyond
