Simon Quigg Comp 1 History of the Sixth Extinction According to Merriam Webster, the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were science and philosophy increased in prominence. In Kolbert’s Sixth Extinction , she presents many ideas, some of which are personal and all of which have a scientific basis, which the reader may find to be odd or even eccentric. But even before she goes to into any great detail about her ideas, presumptions or hypotheses, she begins with the scientific basis on which they are based. The way that Kolbert writes the Sixth Extinction is a very logical and orderly way. She begins with a broad topic in her beginning chapters and then as the chapters progress, so do her ideas. She begins to narrow her ideas and with that the time period becomes closer and closer to the present. As her ideas gain more momentum and more definition, her historical backup grows and becomes closer to her ideas until they meet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
