Culture: The Story of Us from Cave Art to K-Pop
Meeting: July 27 @ 6-7:30 PM
Location: 1308 Third Avenue, Spring Lake, NJ
Wine Selection: TBD
Summary: For millennia, humanity has sought to understand and transmit to future generations the purpose of our existence as expressed in art, architecture, religion, and philosophy. This crucial passing down of knowledge has required the radical integration of insights from the past and from other cultures. In Culture: The Story of Us from Cave Art to K-Pop, Martin Puchner takes us on a breakneck tour through pivotal moments in world history, providing a global introduction to the arts and humanities in one engaging volume.
From Nefertiti’s lost city to Chinese travel journals to Arab and Aztec libraries, Puchner tells the gripping story of human achievement through our collective losses and rediscoveries, power plays and heroic journeys, innovations, imitations, and appropriations.
