7.Political, Historical and Legal Analysis of Cultural Phenomena:Interdisciplinary Challenge

Outline Periods

The goal of our research is to respond to the following three questions from interdisciplinary perspectives. 

1. Whether it is appropriate to consider culture in a broad sense as cultural environment that is indispensable for the meaningful lives of humans (along with natural environment).  

2. What kind of correlation exists between the western-centered cultural phenomena of 20th century and the newly-emerging cultural phenomena of multi-culture and multi-civilization? And what kind of changes does such correlation bring about to the respective phenomena? 

3. What would be more appropriate and universal hypothesis or paradigm to understand cultural phenomena? These are important questions but have not been thoroughly discussed so far. Therefore, seeking disciplinary answers for these questions will be of great academic significance.
