@Description The centuries between 800 and 300 BC saw an explosion of new religious and philosophical concepts. Their emergence is second only to mans harnessing of fire in fundamentally transforming our understanding of what it is to be human. But why did Socrates, Buddha, Confucius, Jeremiah and Lao Tzu V among others V all emerge in this five-hundred-years span? And why did they have such similar ideas about humanity? In The Great Transformation, Karen Armstrong examines this phenomenal period and the connections between such a disparate group of philosophers, mystics and theologians. It is nothing less than a global account of the time when religious belief, as we understand it, was born.
