    One thought on “عندما تغير العالم”

    1. I absolutely love this book It may well be the only non fiction book that I have ever said this about, but I found so much entertainment as well as a wealth of education in it that it deserves this banner Mr Burke takes historically significant moments some I knew about and some I didn t and shows us just how these moments turned the entire Universe of knowledge on it s ear Even if we didn t see it at the time It is very thought provoking and really opened my eyes to the stodgy way we now think [...]

    2. I didn t like this book because James Burke has a huge underlying bias There is no real truth I do agree with his idea that our perspective and beliefs shape the way we see the world, and that science and knowledge of the world influences how we see the world around us Ironically, the reason I didn t like his book is his own bias against Christianity Burke seems to portray the idea that since our understanding of the truth is always changing, we cannot rely on our beliefs and that there is no re [...]

    3. I believe this was the companion book to the wonderful PBS Series of the same title hosted by James Burke in the 1980 s In it, he pinpoints pinnacle points in scientific history that changed the world as we know it hopefully you weren t reading that last sentence aloud.What I love most about this book is that Mr Burke understands that no Scientific discovery or theory actually drops from a tree like Newton s apple no matter how tasty that apple is He does a wonderful job rewinding from the point [...]

    4. The book is a companion to the 1980s BBC series by James Burke, The Day The Universe Changed Burke episodically walks us through some of the turning points in the development and educational evolution of man The BBC series shown on PBS in the 80 s is enlightening, provocative, and very entertaining The book, however, is dry by comparison, and lacks Burke s personal entertaining style and wit.You can see the BBC series on Youtube you can also buy the DVD set for home TV viewing, about 100 but wor [...]

    5. Burke quickly covers a wide period of history, philosophy, religion, and science, hitting mostly highlights Burke s closing summation is outstanding At the close, Burke ties everything together elegantly, leaving the reader with unanswered questions, but still satisfied I especially connected with his observation that our current structures for explaining reality are limited by contemporary methods, truths, and instruments That we all live a contemporary truth to be replaced is, to me, a fine pl [...]

    6. Burke is a very clear, concise and intelligent writer who carefully chooses the events he believes to be the most signal in changing our understanding of the way the universe works He ends his book with the thesis that since all facts and information are filtered through the societal understanding of the people who look for and interpret them, truth itself is relative, and the way we understand the universe today is not necessarily the final say In fact, history would suggest that another change [...]

    7. There is little doubt to me that James Burke is the God of How This Led To That If you haven t seen or read Connections, add it to your must read watch list as quickly as you can and follow up by watching reading He followed up Connections with The Day the Universe Changed and it was an equally worthy read and watch.I do not recommend Connections II and III Marketing got involved something Burke even mentioned in an interview.But Connections and The Day the Universe Changed are excellent Want to [...]

    8. I cannot really tell what is the purpose of this book If you are ignorant, you won t get any better understanding, besides few anecdotes served on some surreal plate, that will try convince you, that every discovery was just blind luck without any reason in one place of the book it is even directly stated If you already have basic knowledge of given subject, you won t get any better information It is just quick jumping on various discoveries with uneven attention indexing is explained in details [...]

    9. Nothing new here.If you re unfamiliar with the history of science, I guess this is a fairly quick summary But for anyone who knows anything about this material, there s nothing new here no original insights, no unexpected reframing of issues A reasonable book to give to a friend who wants to know this material, but nothing than that.

    10. We have this in hard cover, I ll have to re read This was a fantastic BBC TV Series with the same name we watched in the 80 s.

    11. Me gusta como est unido este libro que va de ciertos descubrimientos importantes para el occidentalismo y lo va tejiendo con la mentalidad que lo genero y lo que sigui despu s Por ejemplo, el mundo que usaba la Biblia como libro hist rico antes de Wallace Darwin y luego, cuando la teor a de la selecci n natural fue aceptada, se us como argumento para el nazismo y la eugen tica.Me gust la parte de la evoluci n de la medicina donde el paciente va perdiendo protagonismo y la medicina se va haciendo [...]

    12. The Day the Universe Changed examines the history of science James Burke talks us through various periods in our history starting from the 11th century on and shows us the evolution of science in various fields These fields range from medicine to astronomy, relativity to natural history and so on.The chapters subjects covered are below.The Way We Are It Started with the GreeksIn the Light of the Above Medieval Conflict Faith ReasonPoint of View Scientific Imagination in the RenaissanceA Matter o [...]

    13. History is not defined by the things that happen it is defined by what causes things to happen The book, The Day the Universe Changed, by James Burke, explores those moments of change, that have occurred throughout history Most of the changes examined by the author, at first glance, seem out of place, and even irrelevant However, every change discussed in this book is part of a bigger picture their presence in our modern world This book explains that although our world is incredibly different th [...]

    14. Based on his TV series of the same name from the mid 1980s It s about the fundamental changes that have occurred in our understanding of how the world works, and the ways in which society has been changed as a result Burke s great gift is for connecting things which is why I guess he called his later TV series Connections and I particularly like the way he weaves scientific and cultural change together in his accounts of the birth of modern medicine and the birth of modern geology and evolutiona [...]

    15. A good read, and is right in line with what I was hoping for.The book itself is a history of science, and looks at various moments in history when some event either shaped subsequent history, or how larger changes came about.For example, there s a section on medicine and physicians Initially, physicians are highly educated experts who horde their private knowledge of remedies, and have limited to no accountability for their talent in treating various diseases and ailments Fast forward to a coupl [...]

    16. I loved this book and the TV series that goes with it James Burke gave a view on science, technology and history that still aids understanding of how the world works and how humans work within it It is a view that encourages us to look at people, events, cultures, worldviews, in their own contexts, rather than judging them by our own standards By arguing for a relativistic view of knowledge, Burke demonstrates that changes in human perceptions of reality which are what knowledge is alter the str [...]

    17. James Burke has a view of history as a web of discoveries rather than a linear progression This book follows that pattern He takes us from the dark ages all the way to today Progress is very limited at first, as people are isolated after the fall of the Roman Empire There is no exchange of knowledge, and the Bible is the authority for belief in nature Most people cannot read, so hearsay is how they obtain information Gradually, there is interchange of information as one after another, advances [...]

    18. The Day the Universe Changed is a companion book to a BBC series of the same name that was first aired in the mid 1980 s The stories of Galileo, the printing press, perspective in art and others that mark turning points in human history are fascinating to me every time I read about them so I enjoyed the book However, the most striking takeaway this time was really the acceleration of change in just the last several hundred years Our brains are wired to deal with or impose ordered, unchanging con [...]

    19. James Burke is one of my favorite non fiction authors I loved Connections and my favorite book of his was The Pinball Effect Unfortunately, The Day the Universe Changed let me down quite a bit Oh, it still had some excellent scientific history and there were certainly no errors of fact But the book seemed to lack some of the excitement of Burke s other works and was much less organized The last chapter was especially nebulous and didn t seem to tie things up well at all I will continue to read a [...]

    20. A good overview of the history of scientific development covering a broad range of history A good read, but I enjoyed The Age of Wonder How the Romantic Generation Discovered the Beauty and Terror of Science , but wonder is a narrowly focused history changed mentions some of what happens in wonder in passing.This seems to be based on the bbc documentary which is available on youtube and worth watching youtube view_play_list

    21. non fiction Burke is awesome Be careful, he looks at things from a perspective that I was not used to Basically, he goes through history to review the series of events that led from one to another to be pivotal in creating the world we live in I like him because he focuses on the individuals that were key and tells why they were so crucial While this can be someone over simplifying, I tend to agree that history often boils down to specific people Burke puts that individual face on the daunting h [...]

    22. This book is excellent for what it was intended Packed with historic facts, feats, stories and anecdotes I just thoroughly enjoyed I have given this book to many as a gift I hope they will take the time to read Do yourself a big favor and read this instead of watching the latest series of who done it On a side note, too bad California Chrome had to race against those that did not participate in the triple crown.

    23. An excellent and fascinating book It took me quite a while to read it as it is pretty heavy material, but I definitely feel smarter for having done so It looks and reads a lot like a history text I actually had someone on the plane ask what period in history I was studying , but an interesting one My only complaint is the poor punctuation editing the book would certainly be much easier to read were there commas.

    24. I would prefer to watch the series, which I have watched many times, but the book is great as a companion You will not find Burke s head poking unexpectedly into the frame and there are not the moments where you wonder, How di he get permission to do that The book is good though and contains much of the script, though I have not watched and followed along Someday I will do that Anyway The series is one of the greatest ever made and the book is excellent.

    25. This is a book my father gave me 20 plus years ago I began reading this book about a year ago and abandoned it for months and finally scanned the last 30 pages I found the earlier sections interesting than the last few chapters Burke argues that when man s views of reality are changed by knowledge, reality itself changes It makes one wonder, what or our reality of today will be proven to be very different in the future.

    26. I give up I made it about 2 3 of the way through before I had to throw in the towel on this one 1 It was very poorly written Main ideas are very poorly articulated 2 He is either anti religious or at least anti Catholic A lot of personal opinion colored his commentary to such a degree it is difficult to trust his conclusions.

    27. This is a great recap of James Burke s take on change Really a special book and worth a review if you re a fan of any of Burke s TV work As a devotee of Connections I still think its the best documentary series ever made take that Ken Burns this opened my eyes to Burke s scholarship and understanding of the causes and outcomes of change in the Western world.

    28. Interesting reading his take on the points or times that changed the world Reading, Mathematics, Medicine, Industrialization, and Science to name a few Very slow reading as it has many facts and is written somewhat like a text book I did enjoy the book Just took me quite a while to finish it.

    29. James Burke is the very epitome of the obnoxious presenter No question But I did like both the TV series and book versions of The Day The Universe Changed The book is fun not analytically deep, of course, but a fun introduction to key events and key ideas that led to the construction of modernity and the modern scientific worldview Worth reading and the series is worth renting, too.
