The Western Tradition covers the ancient world through the age of technology, this illustrated lecture by Eugen Weber presents a tapestry of political and social events woven with many strands — religion, industry, agriculture, demography, government, economics, and art. A visual feast of over 2,700 images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art portrays key events that shaped the development of Western thought, culture, and tradition.
I personally love these videos, mostly because Eugen Weber makes the history so damn interesting. Mr. Weber strikes me as a very classy guy, as if he’s from some more erudite and noble era come to enlighten us. Unfortunately Mr. Weber passed away in 2007.
