Genius of Western Civilization - Ep. 4: Invention & Science [6-part Celebration of The West]

"The West is the New Culture Forum's landmark six-part documentary series exploring the history, achievements and genius of Western civilisation. Inspired by legendary TV programmes such as Civilisation, Kenneth Clark's 1969 masterpiece, The West is a bold reminder of who we are -- and why our culture is worth defending. Episode 4: Our Dangerous Inventions From the beginning, the West was technically innovative, embracing water mills to compensate for its lack of slave labour. This episode explores the story of how the ingenious West took that to new heights. We travel from the rational vision of creation offered by Christianity to the mechanical clocks and glass lenses of the Middle Ages, to the revolutionary discoveries of Isaac Newton and his successors. But the West’s dangerous inventions also upset established truths and leave us with the hardest question of all: how should we use the terrifying powers we have unlocked? l New episodes of The West premiere weekly, here on our YouTube channel: Episode 1: Liberty or Death: • Genius of Western Civilization - Ep. ... Episode 2: The Christian Revolution: • Genius of Western Civilization - Ep. ... Episode 3: The Rule of Law: • Genius of Western Civilisation - Ep. ... Episode 4: The Invention of Science Episode 5: How Did The West Get So Rich? Episode 6: Is The West History? ABOUT THE SERIES: In six 30-40 minute episodes, The West offers a brand new, panoramic account of our extraordinary, unconventional civilisation. This is the great, and still unfolding adventure of Western civilisation: who we are and why it matters, retold for a new generation. The West is written and presented by Marc Sidwell, Senior Fellow at the New Culture Forum and author of the NCF's critically acclaimed book: "The Long March: How the Left Won the Culture War and What To Do About it"." from video introduction
