The Matrix of Western Culture: Perspectives on History, the Arts, and Ideas

by Arthur Wenk

Art, music, literature, philosophy, science, history: how do they all fit together?

The Matrix of Western Culture presents a framework for seeing the “big picture.” Imagine a grid with these cultural categories on one axis and time, marked in centuries, on the other. The interior of the matrix comprises a representative repertoire described in a series of brief, readable essays.

Well-read adults will, over the years, have encountered individual works in each of the categories that make up the matrix. Many readers will share my interest in organizing this knowledge into a coherent framework. The Matrix of Western Culture offers an accessible overview that one can keep in mind all at once.

�galité Hommes-Femmes: Une �nigme à Briser (French Edition)

by Fousseni Togola

L’inégalité n’est jamais le sort d’un être, elle est toujours provoquée. La nature ne connait pas d’inégalité, d’injusticeâ?¯; l’inégalité n’est pas naturelle mais provoquée. Tout cela signifie que ces discriminations à l’égard des femmes ne relèvent pas de leur nature ou de leur constitution physiologique, mais plutôt d’une mentalité purement sexiste de la part des hommes.Ces traitements à l’égard des femmes constituent une violation grave à l’égard des droits internationaux et a priori des droits de l’homme. Lorsque nous parlons de droits, les catégorisations n’existent pas. Nous parlons de droits des hommes et non pas de celui des hommes (masculin). Or, les femmes font partes de la catégorie des hommes en tant qu’êtres raisonnables. Alors, refusez de leur reconnaitre ce statut, c’est les réduire au statut de la bestialité.Cependant, il convient de remettre les femmes dans leurs droits en les traitant sur les mêmes pieds d’égalité que les hommesâ?¯; en les laissant les mêmes chances de s’épanouir que les hommes. L’égalité de chance doit devenir une réalité.
