SPECIAL GUEST DISCUSSIONDam and Isa have posted their first thoughts in this week's special discussion on the nature and ethics of progress and development. Isa takes a "morally neutral" stance and highlights what he thinks are the pitfalls of anti-progress discourse, while Dam describes what he calls "the myth of progress" in the context of a Hegelian understanding of history. Fascinating stuff.
UPDATE: Above have been posted the final two pieces of this series, Dam's thoughts on Cultures of Consumption/Consuming Cultures and Isa's on Cultural Imperialism vs. Globalization.
