How the West Won: The Neglected Story of the Triumph of Modernity3,87 15 5 Scritto da: Rodney Stark Letto da: Kevin Foley
How the West Won demonstrates the primacy of uniquely Western ideas-among them the belief in free will, the commitment to the pursuit of knowledge, the notion that the universe functions according to rational rules that can be discovered, and the emphasis on human freedom and secure property rights. How the West Won displays Stark's gifts for lively narrative history and making the latest scholarship accessible to all. This bold, insightful book will force you to rethink your understanding of the West and the birth of modernity-and to recognize that Western civilization really has set itself apart from other cultures.
