  • The History of the Renaissance - Full Documentary

    The Renaissance was a period in European history, from the 14th to the 17th century, regarded as the cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and modern history. It started as a cultural movement in Italy in the Late Medieval period and later spread to the rest of Europe, marking the beginning of the Early Modern Age. The intellectual basis of the Renaissance was its own invented version of humanism, derived from the rediscovery of classical Greek philosophy, such as that of Protagoras, who said that "Man is the measure of all things." This new thinking became manifest in art, architecture, politics, science and literature. Early examples were the development of perspective in oil painting and the recycled knowledge of how to make concrete. Although the invention of metal movable type spe...

  • 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!

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.

Although Locke and Newton lived before the Enlightenment, the philosophes relied heavily on their ideas. John Locke's social contract, which asserted that governments exist to protect individual liberty, was foundational for those who sought to advance freedom of thought in the eighteenth century. Isaac Newton's laws of physics, which outlined a rational universe governed by natural law, became popular with philosophes like Voltaire who wished to apply scientific principles to religion and society.

His categorical imperative provided a framework for deciding whether or not an action is moral by considering what would happen if that action became universal law. Adam Smith, the father of classical economic theory and the author of Wealth of Nations, advocated for an economy free from government intervention. Smith claimed that an economy guided by the "invisible hand" of self-interested individuals would produce a more prosperous society than an economy guided by a central authori...

The Renaissance was a period in European history, from the 14th to the 17th century, regarded as the cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and modern history. It started as a cultural movement in Italy in the Late Medieval period and later spread to the rest of Europe, marking the beginning of the Early Modern Age. The intellectual basis of the Renaissance was its own invented version of humanism, derived from the rediscovery of classical Greek philosophy, such as that of Protagoras, who said that "Man is the measure of all things." This new thinking became manifest in art, architecture, politics, science and literature. Early examples were the development of perspective in oil painting and the recycled knowledge of how to make concrete. Although the invention of metal movable type sped the dissemination of ideas from the later 15th century, the changes of the Renaissance were not uniformly experienced across Europe. As a cultural movement, the Renaissance encompassed innovative flowering of Latin and vernacular literatures, beginning with the 14th-century resurgence of learning based on classical sources, which contemporaries credited to Petrarch; the development of linear perspective and other techniques of rendering a more natural reality in painting; and gradual but widespread educational reform. In politics, the Renaissance contributed to the development of the customs and conventions of diplomacy, and in science to an increased reliance on observation and inductive reasoning. Although the Renaissance saw revolutions in many intellectual pursuits, as well as social and political upheaval, it is perhaps best known for its artistic developments and the contributions of such polymaths as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, who inspired the term "Renaissance man". The Renaissance began in Florence, in the 14th century. Various theories have been proposed to account for its origins and characteristics, focusing on a variety of factors including the social and civic peculiarities of Florence at the time: its political structure; the patronage of its dominant family, the Medici and the migration of Greek scholars and texts to Italy following the Fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks.Other major centres were northern Italian city-states such as Venice, Genoa, Milan, Bologna, and finally Rome during the Renaissance Papacy. The Renaissance has a long and complex historiography, and, in line with general scepticism of discrete periodizations, there has been much debate among historians reacting to the 19th-century glorification of the "Renaissance" and individual culture heroes as "Renaissance men", questioning the usefulness of Renaissance as a term and as a historical delineation. The art historian Erwin Panofsky observed of this resistance to the concept of "Renaissance": It is perhaps no accident that the factuality of the Italian Renaissance has been most vigorously questioned by those who are not obliged to take a professional interest in the aesthetic aspects of civilization—historians of economic and social developments, political and religious situations, and, most particularly, natural science—but only exceptionally by students of literature and hardly ever by historians of Art.

Lama Michel Rinpoche, born in 1981, was recognised by Lama Gangchen Rinpoche and many great lamas as a tulku, a reincarnation of a Tibetan buddhist lama, who chose to be reborn in Brasil to benefit that country, all South America and the entire modern society. Lama Gangchen was invited to visit Brasil in 1987 by Bel and Daniel, Lama Michel’s parents. Strong ties were formed with the whole family, who founded the first of many Dharma Centres under the guide of Lama Gangchen: the “Shi De Chöe Tsog” Centre. Lama Michel Rimpoche has travelled many times to sacred places in India, Nepal, Indonesia, Cambogia, Mongolia and Tibet. During these journeys, he has had many intuitions, dreams and special visions. His character and generous nature began to show in the traditional Buddhist way. Lama Michel Rinpoche is a very special person. Many people have seen his energy as pure as that of Maitreya, the future Buddha of Compassion. His Tibetan name is Chang Chub Chopel Lobsang Nyetrab, which means Wise and Famous Mind of Enlightenment which Spreads Dharma Successfully. .....

Lagrange, the great Mathematician - Documentary (French) Lagrange, le grand mathématicien - Joseph-Louis Lagrange was an Italian Enlightenment Era mathematician and astronomer. He made significant contributions to the fields of analysis, number theory, and both classical and celestial mechanics. In 1766, on the recommendation of Euler and d'Alembert, Lagrange succeeded Euler as the director of mathematics at the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin, Prussia, where he stayed for over twenty years, producing volumes of work and winning several prizes of the French Academy of Sciences. Lagrange's treatise on analytical mechanics (Mécanique analytique, 4. ed., 2 vols. Paris: Gauthier-Villars et fils, 1788–89), written in Berlin and first published in 1788, offered the most comprehensive treatment of classical mechanics since Newton and formed a basis for the development of mathematical physics in the nineteenth century. In 1787, at age 51, he moved from Berlin to Paris and became a member of the French Academy. He remained in France until the end of his life. He was significantly involved in the decimalisation in Revolutionary France, became the first professor of analysis at the École Polytechnique upon its opening in 1794, was a founding member of the Bureau des Longitudes, and became Senator in 1799. Scientific contribution[edit] Lagrange was one of the creators of the calculus of variations, deriving the Euler–Lagrange equations for extrema of functionals. He also extended the method to take into account possible constraints, arriving at the method of Lagrange multipliers. Lagrange invented the method of solving differential equations known as variation of parameters, applied differential calculus to the theory of probabilities and attained notable work on the solution of equations. He proved that every natural number is a sum of four squares. His treatise Theorie des fonctions analytiques laid some of the foundations of group theory, anticipating Galois. In calculus, Lagrange developed a novel approach to interpolation and Taylor series. He studied the three-body problem for the Earth, Sun and Moon (1764) and the movement of Jupiter’s satellites (1766), and in 1772 found the special-case solutions to this problem that yield what are now known as Lagrangian points. But above all, he is best known for his work on mechanics, where he has transformed Newtonian mechanics into a branch of analysis, Lagrangian mechanics as it is now called, and presented the so-called mechanical "principles" as simple results of the variational calculus.

Romanticism is a historical movement that still hugely colours how we tend to feel and look at the world: it’s responsible for the way we approach love, nature, business and children. This is its 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!

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.

https://www.tomrichey.net/enlightenment.html In this first segment of my lecture on the philosophes (Enlightenment thinkers), I note the contributions of John Locke and Isaac Newton in laying the foundations for the Enlightenment. Although Locke and Newton lived before the Enlightenment, the philosophes relied heavily on their ideas. John Locke's social contract, which asserted that governments exist to protect individual liberty, was foundational for those who sought to advance freedom of thought in the eighteenth century. Isaac Newton's laws of physics, which outlined a rational universe governed by natural law, became popular with philosophes like Voltaire who wished to apply scientific principles to religion and society. Although Newton and Locke had come and gone by the time the Enlightenment hit Europe in full-swing, they gave the movement a starting point and a foundation that it would have otherwise lacked.

https://www.tomrichey.net/enlightenment.html This segment on my lecture on the philosophes focuses on the work of Immanuel Kant and Adam Smith. Kant, most famous for writing the Critique of Pure Reason, stated that Enlightenment involves an individual's decision to escape from nonage and think independently. His categorical imperative provided a framework for deciding whether or not an action is moral by considering what would happen if that action became universal law. Adam Smith, the father of classical economic theory and the author of Wealth of Nations, advocated for an economy free from government intervention. Smith claimed that an economy guided by the "invisible hand" of self-interested individuals would produce a more prosperous society than an economy guided by a central authority. This fits in well with other Enlightenment theories, which stress the importance and sufficiency of natural law.

http://www.tomrichey.net/euro Mr. Richey explains the origins of the Romantic movement as a rebellion against the values of the Enlightenment and the ugliness of the Industrial Revolution. The Romantics offered a critique of progress as defined by technological advancement and luxury. The works of Romantic authors, such as Oliver Goldsmith, Mary Shelley, and William Blake are discussed in the context of Romantic values. This lecture was designed chiefly for students preparing for the AP European History (AP Euro) exam, but will also be useful for students of Western Civilization and World History, as well as lifelong learners. Another lecture on Romantic Art will be forthcoming.

Type Recordings has announced details of the second proper album from Italian experimental techno producer Shapednoise. 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”. The album follows 2013’s Until Human Voices Wake Us mini LP and the The Day Of Revenge full-length, released on Opal Tapes and Hospital Productions respectively. More recently Shapednoise has been working with Mumdance and Logos on their collaborative project The Sprawl. The album is released on LP and digital formats on December 3 via Type (a label independently operated by FACT’s John Twells). It features nine tracks, one of which is a collaboration with Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick. http://www.shapednoise.net/ http://www.soundcloud.com/shapednoise http://www.typerecords.com/ http://soundcloud.com/_type
