Why Do We Need a New History?
What is a human being? How do humans differ from animals? Why do only humans have a history? Can we learn from history? What is the cause of humanity’s tendency to self-destruction?
Nowadays these questions are set in a new way. No traditional line of thought has been able to summarize, in a satisfactory way, the surprising events of the past era or the new discoveries in sciences studying prehistory and human origins.
“Know Yourself!” According to Linné and Hegel, the appeal of the oracle of Delfoi and the wise men of ancient Greek is intended not only for the human individual but for all humanity.
We are living in a time of human unification. Humankind must study to learn from its own history, unite as a species by its self-knowledge, or it will destroy itself.
