History of Western Science – PART I:  Man is the Measure of All Things

Part I of this four-part series will explore the beginnings of science and technology in the earliest humans until Rome’s fall and the Classical tradition’s end. This theoretical and practical scientific tradition marks the West as unique in its emphasis on theoretical knowledge of the world and its application to everyday life. This tradition will be replaced with an adversarial Judeo-Christian spiritual tradition that will reject much of the teachings of the ancient world, but they persist even today in their influence and power over present thinking.
