by Stephen Jay Gould

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
3 Hrs. 30 Min.


What is our concept of a millennium and how has its meaning shifted? When does the new millennium begin? Why must our calendars be so complex, anyway? Best selling author Stephen Jay Gould applies his wit and erudition to exploring these questions, which cover one of today's most pressing subjects. Gould developed an interest in the approaching millennium at age 8, in 1950, when Life magazine marked the century's midpoint. Now, the evolutionary scientist holds the mirror up to all of our millennial passions in this wide-ranging discussion that reveals our foibles, absurdities, and uniqueness - in other words, our humanity.
