Dr Harari’s fourth lecture under the general heading of ”The Scientific Revolution” covers the Industrial Revolution.

During the last 200 years, the combination of science, imperialism and capitalism produced the Industrial Revolution.

This week’s lectures attempt to answer these questions. These are my lecture notes created using the subtitles from the Coursera videos.
