In China, India and the Mediterranean, in Central America and in parts of South America, the so-called classical cultures rose. For the first time, science attempted to develop independently of myth and religion, as a new method to explain nature and human destiny. But this period also witnessed the rise of universal religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and, in the seventh century, Islam. A conscious attempt has been made in this volume to present these fourteen centuries of cultural and scientific development in a balanced way.
