Big History

big_history

Big History is an expression coined in 1990 by Anglo-American historian David Christian. Big History is the multidisciplinary history of the world as we understand it today, from the emergence of the Universe, 13.8 billion years ago to today, through the birth of stars and Earth, through the apparition and evolution of life, the human race and societies. With this theme, we are expressing our will to anchor the present in the history of the world, to deepen our understanding of where we are and what is to come by shedding new light on our past and learning better lessons from it.
