W. Davis: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World

Anthropologist and author David Wade gives a lecture on the current state of humanity as a web of cultural societies, threatened by climate change and egocentric nation states. An enthralling and compelling witness of how a dominant culture can wreak havoc for the sake of progress by destroying the very thing that identifies it as unique and wondrous. Our great diversity of culture spans the globe yet our western focus on racial differences obscures our true commonality from the genes of our DNA to the unrelenting questions of who am I, why am I here and what is my purpose.
