1 THE MAKING OF THE MODERN WORLD 2: GREAT CLASSICAL TRADITIONS Winter 2010 Professor Page duBois Telephone: 534-3379 or 534-3210 TTh 6:30-7:50 Center HaLL 105 This quarter of The Making of the Modern World introduces classical traditions of the ancient world. We will consider the emergence of civilizations in the ancient Near East, in Mesopotamia and Egypt, and the development of Judaism, the invention of democracy in the city-state of Athens in ancient Greece, the early history of India and the emergence of Hinduism and Buddhism, the beginnings of Chinese civilization, and the Confucianism and Taoism of classical China. We will focus on systems of thought, on the forms of social and political order that they support or challenge, and on the social, political, and religious practices of the peoples in these early civilizations. We will place these early societies in historical context, examining the kinds of conflicts that arose with their development and the transformations of which they were part.

    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.
