William James Durant November 5, —November 7, was an American philosopher, historian, and writer. He is best known for his authorship and co-authorship with his wife Ariel Durant of The Story of Civilization.

Durant, it has been said widely, attempted to bring philosophy to the common man.
Updated: Dec 21, This is an essay about a philosophy teacher who wanted millions of Americans to read history and devised a story of civilization suited to that aim. In the next year, Durant and his wife, Ariel, began writing The Story of Civilization , the project which would consume the next forty-five years of their lives and enrapture millions of readers around the world. In the first few decades of the twentieth century, enormous increases in literacy vastly expanded the market for books in many academic subjects, including history. At the same time, universities also expanded rapidly, creating far more professional historians whose work became increasingly fragmented and specialized.

The Story of Civilization — , by husband and wife Will and Ariel Durant , is an volume set of books covering Western history for the general reader. The series was written over a span of more than five decades. It totals four million words across nearly 10, pages, with two further books in production at the time of the authors' deaths. However, the series ends with The Age of Napoleon because the Durants both died—she in her 80s and he in his 90s—before they could complete additional volumes. They also left behind notes for a 12th volume, The Age of Darwin , and an outline for a 13th, The Age of Einstein , which would have taken The Story of Civilization to The first six volumes of The Story of Civilization are credited to Will Durant alone, with Ariel recognized only in the acknowledgements.
A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within. We hope you will join us in The Imaginative Conservative community. We address culture, liberal learning, politics, political economy, literature, the arts and the American Republic in the tradition of Russell Kirk, T. What was the role of faith in the American Founding? Is liberal learning still possible in the modern academy?

Я видел алгоритм. Уверяю вас, он стоит этих денег. Тут все без обмана. Он стоит десять раз по двадцать миллионов. - Увы, - сказал Нуматака, которому уже наскучило играть, - мы оба знаем, что Танкадо этого так не оставит. Подумайте о юридических последствиях.
