گاهی وقت ها یه کتاب رو یه جا پیدا می کنی، و با خودت فکر می کنی "این دقیقاً این جا چی کار می کنه؟؟"
این از همون کتاب هاست. هنوز نمی دونم دقیقاً توی کتابخونه ی پدرم چی کار می کرد. باید یه روز ته و توی قضیه رو در بیارم.

Kitap, insanlığın geçirdiği sosyolojik, kültürel, siyasi, ekonomik, dini ve antropolojik evrimi kabaca anlatıyor. Kitap 1937 yılında yazılmış, oldukça eski bir tarih sayılır, haliyle zamanın bilgilerine göre yazılmış. Kitapta edebiyat başta olmak üzere sanat akımları-süreçleri ile avrupada bilimin tekrar ayağa kalkmasının başlıca kaynağı sayılan rönesans- reform dönemleri ve aktörlerine hiç değinilmemiş. Ayrıca medeniyetin kaynağı olarak ağırlıklı olarak Yunanistan belirtilmiş. 1930'lara kadar y ...more

Birlik beraberlikle gelişen insanlık. Üretim fazlalaşır bireyciliğe dönüş. Zenginlik. Köleliğin doğuşu. Bunların yanında doğayı- insanı- hayatı anlama çabaları. Metafizik ile bilim ile. Bilim katilleri, insanlığın yüz karaları!

Bilim demişken E.Allan.Poe'nun bir şiiri ile bitirelim. Neyse bitirmeyelim. Şiiri bulamadım.

I found this old book in my granddad's library. It's beautifully written, very descriptive and entertaining. This book was a spark that ignited inquisitive and curious spirit for knowledge in me. Never read a better book than this one yet.

Lovely, just lovely. A charming walk through mans long history, told in M. Ilin's anecdotal style, and translated most exquisitely.

My mother gave me this book when I was eleven, and I read it, loved it , and have it still. It was written for youth, with respect and clarity. I'm almost seventy, maybe time to read it again.

من این کتاب را در دوره ی آموزشی سربازیم خواندم و بسیار لذت بردم.
این کتاب داستان تکامل انسان را به گونه ای همه فهم بازگو می کند.
دانستم که اجداد چگونه کوشیدند تا این امانت چندروزه را به برسانند!

İnsanlığın tarihi ve doğası üzerine merak uyandıran, sizi sorgulamaya ve araştırmaya sevk eden, muhteşem bir popüler bilim kitabı. İnsanlığın tarihine göz atarken size bu günü ve yarını düşünme fırsatı tanıyor. Bilgiler artık yeterince güncel değil ama o kadar da olsun.

I read (and re-read) the Sinhalese language translation of this book as a child in the 80's. This book is what made me interested in History, Evolution and many other things later in life.

Un buen libro que nos ofrece el relato de nuestros antepasados, de como nos convertimos en lo que somos, de como nos convertimos en hombres y luego por supuesto en gigantes. Sin embargo a pesar de que me pareció bastante interesante el libro, sentí que quedó un tanto inconcluso.
