HIS 121: Western Civilization I Civilisation – PART I: THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH Please answer the following questions, based on the series: Civilization Part I. 1. According to John Ruskin, how do civilizations write their autobiographies? Ruskin said “Great nations write their autobiographies in three manuscripts, the book of their deeds, the book of their words, and the book of their art. 2. What are the enemies of civilization? Why do civilizations decline and vanish? The enemies of civilization is fear—fear of the supernatural. Civilizations fail because they daren’t question anything or change anything. 3. What positive aspects are evident in the early Viking invasions of Europe? The sheer technical skill of their journeys is a new achievement for the western world; and if one wants a symbol of Atlantic man that distinguishes him from Mediterranean man, a symbol to set against the Greek temple, it is the Viking ship.

    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.
