5000 concepts for Europe: update 2020/06/23

 

Back in 2017, I launched the idea of a book listing the “5000 concepts that EVERY European should know”

In 2020, with the COVID19 and its socioeconomic impacts taking filling so much of our horizon, a book like that is much more needed than it was three years ago.

To see why, and how, I plan to build and publish such a book, read the initial proposal and its FAQ.

To add your contributions to the 5000 concepts that every European should know, see below.

The best way to contribute YOUR suggestions:

First of all, remember that you can do as many suggestions you want, including concepts already present in this list! Personally, I suggest to do it as follows. You will be surprised to see how quick (and fun!!) it can be:

  • consider all the GENERAL topics you care about and/or know well (e.g.: modern art, Danish politics, geography, sci-fi, medioeval history, software, whatever, really…)
  • for each topic, figure out what you consider the most important concepts in that field
  • enter all those concepts in the “5000 Concepts for Europe” form. If you thought of more than 5 concepts, just reload the form until you are done
  • repeat for the next topic
