Lightbulb Free (DRM-free) Antikkens Verden [Danish Western Classical History Culture Overview]

Antikkens Verden: Videnskab, kultur, myter, religion og de fremmede (The Ancient World: Science, culture, myths, religion, and strangers) edited by Birte Poulsen & Ole Høiris is a volume in the Verdensboger (World Book) series of Danish-language self-contained titles which provide a comprehensive introductory overview to cultural and historical periods, this one covering classical Western antiquity mostly in and around the Mediterranean and the Greek, Roman, and late Egyptian cultures that held sway, as well as some later “barbarians”, free for a limited time courtesy of Aarhus University Press in Denmark.

This is their featured Danish-language Free Book of the Month selection for September, returning after summer hiatus, and we've previously also received the volumes for the Renaissance, Enlightenment, Romanticism, and the Modern Age.

Currently free through September directly @ the university's dedicated promo page (DRM-free PDF available worldwide in return for your valid email address, approx 49 mb), and you can read more about the book on its regular catalogue page

Beskrivelse på dansk
Med Antikkens verden afslutter Aarhus Universitetsforlag sin store serie om den europæiske kultur- og idéhistorie. Antikkens kultur havde sit udspring i Grækenland og Romerriget og påvirkede hele Middelhavsområdet og Mellemøsten. Men antikken dannede også grobund for de tre store idésystemer, der skulle komme til at bære den europæiske historie i flere tusinde år.

Det ene idésystem havde som kerne, at verden skulle forstås verdsligt på baggrund af observation og tænkning eller logik. De fleste af nutidens videnskaber fører deres rødder tilbage til græske filosoffer som Herodot, Platon og Aristoteles.

Det andet store idésystem var mere praktisk, nemlig den romerske statsforvaltning, som har dannet grundlag for statsret og generel lovgivning over store dele af verden.

Det tredje store idésystem, der udsprang af den romerske verden, var kristendommen. I middelalderen skulle den blive det dominerende verdensbillede, og selv i moderniteten har kristendommen fastholdt en stærk indflydelse på den enkeltes forståelse af tilværelsen.

I 25 artikler i Antikkens verden stiller forskere skarpt på centrale aspekter af antikkens tænkning og livsformer. Dermed giver bogen en solid indsigt i grundlaget for hele den vestlige verdens kultur - og en baggrund for at forstå, hvorfor det netop blev de europæiske magter, der efter 1500 blev globalt dominerende.

I have to laugh at myself! I skimmed the title a little too quickly, and was confused by the idea of Danish Cowboys! Logic says they must exist, but I don't think many people write about them!

Well, there's a film about at least one of them, if you're interested. Mads Mikkelsen starring in The Salvation (Wikipedia), about Danish immigrants having reluctant gunslinger adventures in the Wild West.

Just a reminder that today will probably be the last day to pick up the freebie, if you're interested.
