How can we theorize international relations by looking at how nose sizes are depicted in Asian art and literature? Why are Vietnamese immigration officials furious about the maps that appear in Chinese passports? What do Japanese gardens tell us about how nation-states are constructed and defined?

Most music students have been taught that the New World Symphony was the first piece of classical music written in an American national style which Antonín Dvorák invented when he utilized influences from Black music in the second movement.

At the intersection of epistemology and philosophy of language is a puzzle. First, it seems we don’t need less evidence for a claim that we know something if the practical importance of the knowledge claim shifts.

Can Biden’s daily regimen of Gatorade, PB&J’s, and Flintstone Vitamins really keep him in the tip top cognitive shape we’ve come to expect? Is there a certain number of rockets fired by Hamas at Israeli civilians that would convince the Left they’re on the “wrong side of history?” Because clearly, 3500 isn’t it. And when the UFOs playing peek-a-boo…
 
From the beginning of his career, Swiss theologian Karl Barth (1886-1968) was often in conflict with the spirit of his times.

In postwar America, there was no newspaper comic strip more recognizable than Charles Schulz's …
 
Freedom of choice lies at the heart of American society. Every day, individuals decide what to eat, which doctors to see, who to connect with online, and where to educate their children.

Everyone has heard of the term "pseudoscience", typically used to describe something that looks like science, but is somehow false, misleading, or unproven.

Before Winston Churchill made history, he made news. To a great extent, the news made him too.

Discussing this topic and much more …

Talking about social class and the American class structure is a challenge.

Cinderella stories captured the imagination of girls in the 1950s, when dreams of meeting the right man could seem like a happy ending, a solution to life's problems.

Western culture has endlessly represented the ways in which love miraculously erupts in people's lives, the mythical moment in which one knows someone is destined for us; the feverish waiting for a phone call or an email, the thrill that runs our spine at the mere thought of him or her.
