History of Humanity - Scientific and Cultural Development*** This is a universal history of the human mind encompassing a multiplicity of points of view, memories and opinions to be found in the various cultures of the world...More than 450 distinguished scholars from all over the world have participated in the elaboration of this History. The International Commission of the History of the Scientific and Cultural Development of Humankind, consisting of thirty scholars of international repute, is the intellectual and scientific authority behind the project... The History of Humanity provides readers with the broadest possible picture of the different cultures of the world and of their distinct development. Rather than imposing a particular philosophy of history, it accords all philosophies their rightful place. No particular civilization or period is put forward as a pattern for others...The different categories of science and culture are not restrictive in content as they include the creations of the human mind in the widest sense. As a general rule, this History is concerned more with structures than with events, and, in so doing, it focuses on the origins of Humanity, the encounters, interactions and influences that have forged links between the various centres of civilization.
