Have you ever wondered who is to blame for the Kardashians?

This series of lectures on DVD covers the start of what we now call science and goes on to describe the advances made up to the end of the 19thC. If you are fascinated by ideas -- correct, incorrect or just plain wacko, you will enjoy these lectures by an acclaimed professor of history.

In Part Three, presented here,we are firmly in the 19th century and science as we know it today is well under way. We will look at the idea of forces  electric and magnetic -- and see how Michael Faraday's tinkering with wires, batteries and magnets led to the understanding of electromagnetic waves, and hence to radio, television and the 500 channels of rubbish available today. Also discussed are developments in the understanding of energy, the beginnings of modern chemistry, and astronomy.

Social concerns and challenges to conventional religious beliefs are also covered. Class input and discussion are greatly encouraged.

You will have ample time for discussion led by Dick Jackson.

Further classes will be arranged in the future to complete the lecture series.

Fridays, October 20, 27, and November 3, 10, 10:00am- 12:00pm   KCBX in SLO
