One of the most interesting ways that historians study the past is through the so-called “great man theory”: the idea that history is shaped by the lives, decisions, and legacies of specific individuals.
Alexander the Great, Jesus, Darwin, and Churchill are just a few of the many politicians, religious leaders, scientists, philosophers, authors, inventors, and generals who transformed our world in ways that still resonate today. Now, with this unique collection of 36 lectures from our extensive course catalog, meet the remarkable people without whom the world would never be the same. Their lives, accomplishments, and legacies (for good or ill) are a testament to the enduring idea that individual men and women have the power to shape not just their own generation but succeeding generations as well.
