EURTHONA, THE GLOBAL CURRICULUM



COURSE DESCRIPTIONS


The online coarseware, Parts I, II, and III, if printed out, would be over 400 pages. The companion book that accompanies Part III is 479 pages. With the additional content of the links to resources and additional free coarses online the total amount of content is even greater.
Part I: 10,000 BCE to 250 BCE

Teaches the evolution of society East and West and around the globe during the Mesolithic, the Neolithic, the simultaneous rise of writing and civilization in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Syria, India and China, the fall of Ancient Civilization and the ascent of the Classic "Axial Age" in Greece, the Mideast, India and China. All disciplines of study, from science and politics to religion and technology, are combined in "integrated learning" modules in a chronological structure.

Part II: 250 BCE to 1700 CE

Teaches the simultaneous rise of the Roman and Qin/Han Empires, the simultaneous fall of those empires, the development of "Dark Age Empires", the synchronistic emergence of Neo-Aristotelianism and Neo-Confucianism, the Global Renaissance, the Global Reformation and Religious Wars of the 16th and 17th Centuries, and the independent invention of the modern Scientific Method in Western Europe and China around 1600.

Part III: 1700 BCE to 2012 BCE The Copernican Revolution as an Ideological Struggle

Explains why the Copernican Revolution and the rise of Empiricism in China were mainly ideological rather than scientific struggles. Thomas Kuhn's Paradigm Shift Theory describes why scholars fought so bitterly for their worldview after Copernicus debunked the Neo-Aristotelean geocentric universe in 1543 and Mei Tsu proved Neo-Confucianism to be fiction (also in 1543).

This part of the course combines the online content with the companion book.

The online course includes selected highlights and excerpts from the book, "Global Awakening, New Science and the 21st Century Enlightment" along with additonal content that will be updated as as the times change. Learners will graduate from the coarse with a comprehensive knowledge and awareness of the current state of our world, how the major crises of our time can be solved, regenerative solutions that are here and now and how they can actively play a role in changing the world for the better. Links to the Global Regeneration Network and other sites then provide the basis for on-going life-long learning, new careers and activism.

Here is a partial description of the content:

Social Transformation in the 18th Century: The Enlightenment

Teaches the Four Stages of Social Transformation that was the 18th Century: Early Enlightenment, Conservative Backlash, Intensive Phase and the revolutions of the Transformational Phase.

Immanuel Kant: The New Paradigm Copernicus

Shows how Kant's philosophy is the conception point of the New Paradigm, and why his thinking started a second scientific revolution. Explains his contributions to Idealism, World Peace and the concept of a higher awareness.

Johann Von Goethe: The New Paradigm Galileo

Imparts the astonishing breakthroughs of Goethe in developing a philosophy for today and the Law of Organics, as well as the New Paradigm Scientific Method. Explains why Goethe's "Participatory" Scientific Method is far superior to the method of Bacon and Galileo, and why it is key to the creation of the sustainable future.

From Ecology to the New Physics

Teaches the history of the New Paradigm in Science and Technology. Students learn who invented Ecology in 1866, the invention of the solar-powered steam engine, the development of Cultural Anthropology and Jungian Psychology, along with many other subjects from the New Physics to Aldo Leopold's Deep Ecology.

Teilhard de Chardin: Reverse Entropy and the Noosphere

This e-course covers the contributions of Teilhard de Chardin, especially his discovery of Reverse or Negative Entropy, which explains why evolution is always creating ever more complex and conscious life-forms, it is always synthesizing.

Social Transformation: The History of the 1960s and 1970s

Rather than a thematic presentation, recent history is made to come alive with links to video and audio, while the various stages of development of the New Paradigm are studied in detail. The era is compared to other times of great change, such as the early 18th Century, when there were many shocking new ideas but little deep change.

The Conservative Backlash in the 1980s and 1990s

Covers the Thatcher and Reagan era, studying how conservative forces allied themselves and were funded by a few wealthy individuals to defeat the 40-year hold of the liberal Democrats and Labor Party. Also studies the advance of new paradigm science in these decades, especially the discovery of Regenerative Science by Robert Rodale in the 1980s.

Future Studies

Rather than a simple extrapolation to an unsustainable mega-technology future, this delivers Creative Leap Solutions to the world dilemma. We must choose: Regeneration or Degeneration of our World.

Global Regeneration

How Regenerative Science and Earth Restoration techniques can bring back the environment and the community. The potential of a future Global Regeneration Plan is introduced.
