“Big History” Learning Path

One of the most exciting intellectual developments of the last few decades has been the advent of Big History. Big History covers all of human history, but so much more. It starts with the Big Bang, the emergence of atomic particles, galaxies, stars and Planet Earth. It then covers the origins of life, its evolution over time and the evolution of human beings. Finally, it gives broad overview of human history. It cannot get much broader than that!
