Hy101 Western Civilization to 1648. BOOKS- Concise survey of western civ. Odyssey (preferably penguin edition). Letters of aberlard and Eloise (sp). The Prince. All listed on assignments guide and syllabus. Western Civilization is essentially the study of the ideologies, beliefs, religions, etc. that can be defined as western. The West typically has free/participatory governments, capitalist economies, religious toleration, rational inquiry (for example, Plato, Aristotle, etc.), innovative spirit (art & inventions). The west began in the Mediterranean and shifted north and west to Europe, then the culture spread globally as colonization happened. You need both cultural and geographic terms to refer to the West. There is controversy in Western Civilization, as with all people groups- there have been slavery, misogyny, and disparity. Civilizations always have those with too much and those with too little. Civilization: civ: civis, civitas, civilitas- Latin roots. To act like a civilian. The greek word for it is ‘polis’ and is the root for politics. ‘City’ is a defining feature of civilization, where people live together civilly. Cities came from the Neolithic revolution 9-10,000 yrs ago and the locations were all based on the geographic setup of Egypt/Mesopotamia- it started in the East, (modern day Iraq and Iran) where agriculture/ domestication started off. When you have that, you get to specialization of labor, which leads to social/political differences. In the early days of Western Civilization, society was based on the power of priests, who were the higher ups and got paid to appease the gods.
