Episode 3: The most revolutionary ideas in history

Throughout history, brilliant ideas have changed people’s lives time and again. On a large and small scale, ideas revolutionised our everyday life and our way of life. Tangible ideas, such as cooking or money, but also more abstract and spiritual ideas. Eventually all candidates in our ranking came out on top sooner or later. And as is the case with revolutions, this did not always happen peacefully. But revolutionary ideas do not have to be radical. Some of them are quite inconspicuous and yet we come into contact with them every day.
