The abiding forms of civilization are portals to far reaching places and formative undertakings that cover the entire globe. But they are more. On closer inspection, they are also seen to be recurring ways in which human beings go about living their lives. In other words, they are nothing less than fundamental modes of human becoming.
This blog is devoted to looking into these cultural forms — swinging open the gateway into the world that each represents — to better see that characteristic activity they each embrace, which constitutes a distinct way of experiencing things in general and of therefore also living out one’s life in the world.
A toast to your endeavors and the many encounters yet to come . . .
