  • The Renaissance: Was it a Thing? - Crash Course World History #22

    In which John Green teaches you about the European Renaissance. European learning changed the world in the 15th and 16th century, but was it a cultural revolution, or an evolution? We'd argue that any cultural shift that occurs over a couple of hundred years isn't too overwhelming to the people who live through it. In retrospect though, the cultural bloom in Europe during this time was pretty impressive. In addition to investigating what caused the Renaissance and who benefitted from the changes that occurred, John will tell you just how the Ninja Turtles got mixed up in all this.

Different Selves is described as “challenging, unruly selection of tracks” combining the caustic sonics of industrial music with the influence of mid 90s D&B, grime and dark ambient. While Shapednoise has become known as a producer weaving existing genres into unfamiliar forms, the label says that Different Selves is less a deconstruction of club music and more of an “amplification”.

    https://www.tomrichey.net/enlightenment.html This segment on my lecture on the philosophes focuses on the political theories of Montesquieu and Rousseau. Montesquieu's classic work, The Spirit of the Laws, was highly influential in the framing of the United States Constitution. Using Roman and British models as inspiration, he advocated separation of powers and checks and balances in government. Rousseau was less concerned about how to organize a government than to guarantee that a government is legitimate. In The Social Contract, Rousseau outlined a blueprint for a government that would be responsive to the general will.

    http://www.tomrichey.net/writing-clinic This is a brief tutorial video designed to show AP Euro students how to construct an argument comparing the Italian Renaissance and the Northern Renaissance. The Italian Renaissance is typically characterized as secular and individualistic, while the Northern Renaissance is seen as more Christian and socially-oriented. As all historical claims must be supported by evidence, I use Machiavelli's The Prince and Thomas More's Utopia to contrast the two Renaissance movements. And don't forget to note what they have in common! Although the Italian Humanists and Northern Humanists differed in their approach and philosophy, they were all inspired by humanistic (classical) studies. With this approach, you should be set up to score at least half the poin...

  • The Values of the Enlightenment (AP European History)

    http://www.tomrichey.net When studying the Age of Enlightenment, it's important to know who the Enlightenment thinkers were and what they wrote, but for this knowledge to make sense, it needs to be seen within a larger context of the overall values of the Enlightenment. I have selected five values that I think explain the general mindset of the Enlightenment thinkers (philosophes): reason, science, progress, liberty, and toleration. These are the values that inspired Voltaire, Montesquieu, and Adam Smith. This big picture approach should help students who are preparing for exams in AP European History and other subjects - and of course, lifelong learners are always welcome!

Naples (/ˈneɪpəlz/; Italian: Napoli [ˈnaːpoli] ( listen), Neapolitan: Napule [ˈnɑːpələ] or [ˈnɑːpulə]; Latin: Neapolis; Ancient Greek: Νεάπολις, meaning "new city") is the capital of the Italian region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy, after Rome and Milan. In 2015, around 975,260 people lived within the city's administrative limits. The Metropolitan City of Naples had a population of 3,115,320. Naples is the 9th-most populous urban area in the European Union with a population of between 3 million[3] and 3.7 million.[4] About 4.4 million people live in the Naples metropolitan area, one of the largest metropolises on the Mediterranean Sea.[2] Naples is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Bronze Age Greek settlements were established in the Naples area in the second millennium BC.[5] A larger colony – initially known as Parthenope, Παρθενόπη – developed on the Island of Megaride around the ninth century BC, at the end of the Greek Dark Ages.[6][7][8] The city was refounded[by whom?] as Neápolis in the sixth century BC[9] and became a lynchpin of Magna Graecia, playing a key role in the merging of Greek culture into Roman society and eventually becoming a cultural centre of the Roman Republic.[10] Naples remained influential after the fall of the Western Roman Empire, serving as the capital city of the Kingdom of Naples between 1282 and 1816. Thereafter, in union with Sicily, it became the capital of the Two Sicilies until the unification of Italy in 1861. Naples was the most-bombed Italian city during World War II.[11] Much of the city's 20th-century periphery was constructed under Benito Mussolini's fascist government, and during reconstruction efforts after World War II. In recent decades, Naples has constructed a large business district, the Centro Direzionale, and has developed an advanced transport infrastructure, including an Alta Velocità high-speed rail link to Rome and Salerno, and an expanded subway network, which is planned to eventually cover half of the region. The city has experienced significant economic growth in recent decades, and unemployment levels in the city and surrounding Campania have decreased since 1999.[12] However, Naples still suffers from political and economic corruption,[13] and unemployment levels remain high.[14] Naples has the fourth-largest urban economy in Italy, after Milan, Rome and Turin. It is the world's 103rd-richest city by purchasing power, with an estimated 2011 GDP of US$83.6 billion.[15][16] The port of Naples is one of the most important in Europe, and has the world's second-highest level of passenger flow, after the port of Hong Kong.[17] Numerous major Italian companies, such as MSC Cruises Italy S.p.A, are headquartered in Naples. The city also hosts NATO's Allied Joint Force Command Naples, the SRM Institution for Economic Research and the OPE Company and Study Centre.[18][19][20] Naples is a full member of the Eurocities network of European cities.[21] The city was selected to become the headquarters of the European institution ACP/UE[22] and was named a City of Literature by UNESCO's Creative Cities Network.[23] The Villa Rosebery, one of the three official residences of the President of Italy, is located in the city's Posillipo district. Naples' historic city centre is the largest in Europe,[24] covering 1,700 hectares (4,200 acres) and enclosing 27 centuries of history,[25] and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Naples has long been a major cultural centre with a global sphere of influence, particularly during the Renaissance and Enlightenment eras.[26] In the immediate vicinity of Naples are numerous culturally and historically significant sites, including the Palace of Caserta and the Roman ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Culinarily, Naples is synonymous with pizza, which originated in the city. Neapolitan music has furthermore been highly influential, credited with the invention of the romantic guitar and the mandolin, as well as notable contributions to opera and folk standards. Popular characters and historical figures who have come to symbolise the city include Januarius, the patron saint of Naples, the comic figure Pulcinella, and the Sirens from the Greek epic poem the Odyssey. According to CNN, the metro stop "Toledo" is the most beautiful in Europe and it won also the LEAF Award '2013 as "Public building of the year".[27][28] Naples is the Italian city with the highest number of accredited stars from the Michelin Guide.[29] Naples' sports scene is dominated by football and Serie A club S.S.C. Napoli, two-time Italian champions and winner of European trophies, who play at the San Paolo Stadium in the south-west of the city.

https://www.tomrichey.net/enlightenment.html This segment on my lecture on the philosophes focuses on Denis Diderot, co-editor of the first Encyclopedia in addition to being an author, poet, and prankster in his own right. In addition to discussing the significance of Diderot's Encyclopedia, I look at some of Diderot's poetry and explain some of the context behind one of his most famous books, The Nun. The entire lecture is available on this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfzs_X6OQBOznlWfKoL84BT5CML_RRomY

http://www.tomrichey.net/writing-clinic This is a brief tutorial video designed to show AP Euro students how to construct an argument comparing the Italian Renaissance and the Northern Renaissance. The Italian Renaissance is typically characterized as secular and individualistic, while the Northern Renaissance is seen as more Christian and socially-oriented. As all historical claims must be supported by evidence, I use Machiavelli's The Prince and Thomas More's Utopia to contrast the two Renaissance movements. And don't forget to note what they have in common! Although the Italian Humanists and Northern Humanists differed in their approach and philosophy, they were all inspired by humanistic (classical) studies. With this approach, you should be set up to score at least half the points on your AP Euro LEQ (Long Essay Question) if not more!

http://www.tomrichey.net When studying the Age of Enlightenment, it's important to know who the Enlightenment thinkers were and what they wrote, but for this knowledge to make sense, it needs to be seen within a larger context of the overall values of the Enlightenment. I have selected five values that I think explain the general mindset of the Enlightenment thinkers (philosophes): reason, science, progress, liberty, and toleration. These are the values that inspired Voltaire, Montesquieu, and Adam Smith. This big picture approach should help students who are preparing for exams in AP European History and other subjects - and of course, lifelong learners are always welcome!

From jessewaugh.com/film Witness the beautiful Temple of Arcadia, the ethereal Path of Enlightenment, as well as the astounding history and function of Torrigiani Garden's Baccani Tower - otherwise known as The Tower of Athanor. Was human sacrifice a part of the alchemical ritual enacted in the oven of this beautiful Tower of Athanor? Is this the Bohemian Grove of Italy? Marquis Vanni Torrigiani Malaspina, descendent of a long line of Florentine Italian noblemen who is one of the primary custodians of the beautiful Torrigiani Gardens in Florence, Italy, takes us on the garden's Path of Enlightenment, and explains the esoteric significance of the estate's plethora of arcane iconography - including the awe-inspiring Torrigiani Tower of Athanor - a colossal 19th century alchemical oven in which bodies were burned as purification. The Giardino Torrigiani is the largest privately held urban estate in Europe. Next time you're in Florence, be sure to visit the wonderful Torrigiani Gardens - following is their website: http://www.giardinotorrigiani.it
