Abstract:

Part of a series that explores the origins and effects of those inventions that shape the modern world by traveling through history to bring to life the associative nature of change. This episode explores how one medieval word kicks off a trip via Istanbul and the invention of the small print in books that an outlawed English church uses to trigger the Industrial Revolution with chemicals from a Swede which leads to the discovery of a strange language that produced folk stories for the Brothers' Grimm and the investigation into different cultures with the same stories that finally end in the development of cultural anthropology.
