HIST 181 PZ -Explorations in Deep Time

Institution: Pitzer

Description: At the end of the seventeenth century, the bottom dropped out of time. Those accustomed to thinking of the Earth and of humanity, according to biblical timescales now had to confront the possibility of “deep time,” the possibility of a time whose magnitude defied the imagination. We will examine that shift and its consequences, as it played itself out through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with ramifications into the present.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
