Video title: The Birth of Modern European Thought

Use this History and Western Heritage video entitled The Birth of Modern European Thought to study the ideas and attitudes that arose over the course of the late 19th century, sometimes called the Victorian era in honor of the decades-long reign of Britain’s Queen Victoria. These changes were stimulated by an increasingly literate and better-educated public. The increase in education, coupled with wider and cheaper means of printing and distribution, brought men and women all over Europe in touch with the scientific and intellectual community as never before. This contact, however, introduced the general public to many clashing viewpoints that tended to increase the social and political tensions leading up to the Great War - World War 1.
