The Middle Ages: A History From Beginning to End

by Hourly History

Middle Ages
What do you think of when you consider the Middle Ages?
Knights in armor and damsels in distress?
Vikings plundering monasteries?
Religious dissenters burning at the stake?
The dead bodies piling up as war, famine, and plague devastated Europe?
Think again.

While all these are part of the tapestry of the medieval era, the threads of politics, personality and war, culture, religion, education and the arts are vastly more intricate and fascinating. Think Charlemagne, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Peter Abelard, Geoffrey Chaucer and a riveting cast of thousands. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Western Europe had to reinvent itself and redefine its philosophical parentage.

Melania Trump: The Slovenian Side of the Story

by Sandi Gorisek

Let’s play a simple game called “Experimental Lottery” in which you win 1 million dollars, but the winner must divide the winnings between himself and a perfect stranger. The catch is that if the stranger refuses his share, you both end up with nothing and you have only one opportunity. In a real case scenario, computer programmed logic would take anything which is common sense since anything is better than nothing, yet the human mind would refuse anything below 20% of the total winnings. Do you think that the share you offer would change if you were raised in humble surroundings with a state driven economy in which all men are supposed to be equal? How much would this differ if you were male or female, if your parents were rich or poor or if you were raised in a rural or urban envir...

Ancient Greek Consciousness (Introductions to Anthroposophy Book 3)

by Rudolf Steiner

This booklet offers excerpts from three lectures by Rudolf Steiner on ancient Greek consciousness. The lectures are disparate: they date from 1911, 1921 and 1922, and they are all different in style. But they are unified by providing extraordinary insight into that consciousness which is so very different from ours. To say even that Steiner rewrote history would be an understatement: it would be more accurate to say that he added a whole new dimension to historiography as such. The evolution of consciousness as Steiner describes it transcends any mere history of ideas, arguing that not only the content, but the very structure of consciousness, the subject-object relationship itself, has evolved radically over time. Steiner’s full account is dispersed across numerous volumes, but, fortuna...

LSAT IntelliPREP: Effective Preparatory Practices to Ace LSAT

by Intelligent+

The LSAT is approved by the American Bar Association and uses three kinds of questions for measuring your skills viz. verbal reasoning, analytical thinking, and critical reading. Is the test really hard? Well, the easier the LSAT test is, the better your scores will be. In the case of LSAT, if you score 180, it is equivalent to getting 99.97 percent. However, in the LSAT, getting 89 correct answers is considered as a good score. It also indicates that LSAT is a tough test, generally speaking. LSAT is scored on a scale of 120 to 180, and the average score is 150. However, in case you are looking to get admitted into the top twenty-five law schools in the United States, you will have to score in excess of 160.

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...
