History in Three Dimensions

TedX talk by Danièle Cybulskie

Given in Milton, Ontario, Canada on September 23, 2017

When we learn about history, the emphasis is often placed on things we find hilarious or shocking, and pretty much everything we take in afterwards confirms that negative impression. We watch movies and TV shows the emphasize brutality and bad decisions, and we tell ourselves stories about how people were primitive and superstitious – how they never bothered to get clean, how they were unscientific and unreasonable – and we pass along this information without actually wondering if were looking at the whole picture. We carry around this notion that because we are the latest models of humankind, and because we have a lot of access to information, that means we are smarter than the people who lived before us. We like to think of history as a story of continuous forward progress, from left to right, and at the pinnacle: us!
