New Models for Culture 

The author’s studies of perspective and culture during the 1970s and 1980s led gradually to a conviction that standard histories of art and culture (e.g. Janson, Summers) are much too Eurocentric. How can Europe, which is less than 5% of the world population create new models of culture which re-assess Europe’s contributions and at the same time duly give credit to other cultures throughout the world? A central premise is that Europe’s uniqueness is to be found less in its exclusive symbols and more in its inclusive approaches to knowledge and culture. This work has led to a number of articles and is leading to a series of courses for the Paris branch (Internet, Philosophy) of the new European University of Culture scheduled to open on 1 September 2005.
