University of Texas and edX offers an online course on how philosophy, art, literature, and history shaped the twentieth century and the world today.
About the course:
The last century ushered in significant progress. Philosophers, scientists, artists, and poets overthrew our understanding of the physical world, of human behavior, of thought and its limits, and of art, creativity, and beauty. Scientific progress improved the way we lived across the world.
Yet the last century also brought increased levels of war, tyranny, and genocide. Man pushed boundaries of good and evil, right and wrong, justice and injustice - and people lost faith in values. Now, thinkers and leaders are reconstructing theories of value and creating institutions to embody them.
