Welcome to the expansive world of the '1001's', the iconic popular reference series covering everything from philosophy to beers. Whatever the topic, there are 1001 ways to look a little closer.

An awe-inspiring overview of the development of human knowledge over the centuries! 

Part of the highly successful '1001' series which have sold over a million copies in the UK alone, 1001 Ideas That Changed The Way We Think offers not only a comprehensive history of ideas, but also an eminently browsable source of amusement. 

This richly informative and entertaining book provides a wide variety of answers to those eternal questions such as: How was the universe created and what is the place of humans within it? How should a person live? And how can we build a just society? 

The inspiring ideas explored range from Gandhi's theory of civil disobedience to Mary Wollstonecraft's ground-breaking advocacy of women's rights. Readers will discover how the Greek philosopher Zeno 'proved' a flying arrow never moves and the mathematical proof of the existence of life in other galaxies.

A wide variety of cultural movements are also covered, including Neoclassicism, Surrealism and Postmodernism. 

Drawing from a wide spectrum of topics including politics, cosmology, the arts, philosophy and religious beliefs, 1001 Ideas That Changed The Way We Think traces the exponential growth of human knowledge across the centuries. 

Ranging from the ancient wisdom of Confucius and Plato, to the cutting-edge theories taking shape in the twenty-first century, this book offers a wealth of stimulation and wit for any reader with a lively and curious mind.
