Captain Cook Maps the World

Lecture no. 14 from the course: History's Greatest Voyages of Exploration

Captain Cook Maps the World

Taught by Professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Look closely at Captain Cook, an explorer who in many ways epitomized the age of scientific discovery, which lauded exploration for the sake of knowledge. See how his methods and voyages embodied new attitudes toward foreign peoples, and why it’s what Cook didn’t find that helped give us the complete world picture we have today.
