History as Mystery: A Critique of Western Perspectives in a Global Context
As history reveals, it also conceals; so, what do historical narratives conceal? What kind of historical scripts might emerge from our descendants based on our current-cultural artifacts? This is an interdisciplinary discussion that identifies, examines, analyzes and critiques fundamental western concepts from aesthetics, history, philosophy, religion and science as representative of a perspective from an historical or cross-cultural context. Emphasis will be placed on how the past, present, and future have the potential to inform one another and are framed by perspective.
