Examine the Most Powerful Ideas in History

There are certain basic proceses, tools and inventions which have had such a significant influence on the lives of human beings that they can be said to have changed the world. Where did they originate? How did they spread from one culture to another? How did they change during the process?

Ideas that Changed the World answers those questions. Based on a book by Philip Wilkinson and the renowned illustrator Robert Ingpen, it places significant advances in the context of their time, showing how they influenced and challenged each other.

Ideas are the testaments of change. Understand how ideas have shaped the present and you will understand how ideas will change the future.

We're at the dawn of a new millennium. Not just a revolution but a whole new way of thinking. A whole new way of living. We are no longer walking into the future - we are spiraling. Only in the last few thousand years have we seen the human ability to conceive ideas and turn them into reality - and this has changed the very fabric of the world.

Ideas the Changed the World brings the most significant ideas in history to life. It presents the essence of the human brain, its ability to astonish and create monumental change.

Reviews:

Electronic Entertainment, May 1995

"The rich satisfying disc is based on the best-selling book by Robert Ingpen and Philip Wilkinson and offers a zippy tour through history's greatest discoveries and inventions. A gorgeous interface leads the way as you delve into history, exploring everything from early flint tools to ancient medicine through to the technological revolution. The simplistic text is redeemed by the first-rate presentation."

CD-ROM Today, June 1995
