Why the West Rules - For Now, by Ian Morris

Context with Brad Harris

Jan 9 2019 • 1 hr 29 mins


Is there a logic to history?

Many scholars balk at the idea of searching for such logic, insisting that each culture may only be understood on its own terms. In Why the West Rules - For Now, Ian Morris counters that if we look beyond the facade of culture to how human biology, sociology, and geography interact, it is possible to discover a fundamental pattern in history to help us answer the biggest historical questions, from why the West rules for now, to what will happen next.
