Two French university lecturers in history take the reader on an intriguing journey across time and space, to the core of the millennial spiritual culture. They set out from ancient Athens, pass through the Roman Empire, dwell on the philosophers of the Middle Ages, reveal the exquisiteness of classical literature and music, get into the work of the thinkers of the Age of Enlightenment, of the great writers and scientists of the 19th century, to come to the problems of the Middle East during the 20th century, "the clash of the civilizations", the petrol race, the European political and cultural construction and the inventions of modern physics and medicine... Gradually, in a terse thematic and chronological order, the fundamental knowledge accumulates, which is necessary to modern man so as to be able to have the self-confidence of an informed and intelligent personality with broad scope, building his life on the foresight of those, coming before him.
