In this unique account of human excellence, Charles Murray compiles a comprehensive list of people who have been essential to the worlds of literature, music, art, philosophy, and the sciences. Human Accomplishment explores the differences between great achievements in the arts and in the sciences; meta-inventions; 14 crucial leaps in humanity’s capacity to create great art and science, and the patterns and trajectories of accomplishment across time and geography.Murray, co-author of The Bell Curve, also tackles controversial questions about the concentration of great accomplishment in Europe since 1400, and why men are so disproportionately represented. Eye-opening and humbling, this is a fascinating work that describes what humans can achieve at their best. Charles Murray is the W.H. Brady Scholar in Culture and Freedom at the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research in Washington, D.C. He is the author of seven other books, including The Bell Curve (with Richard J. Herrnstein) and Losing Ground. “In a world of cultural relativism and sentimental diversity, he dares expound a theory of hierarchy founded on enduring structures of thought and objective ideals.” — George Gilder, author of Wealth & Poverty and Telecosm and editor of the Gilder Technology Report
