The Desire to Be Heard: Art, Culture, and the Human Experience
In an increasingly numbers-oriented society, the value of the humanities face heightened scrutiny from politicians, employers, and the general public. Krampe explores the significance and importance of art throughout human history, and why some things are very important, even if they cannot be easily measured or quantified. The presentation introduces cutting edge archaeological discoveries and research in the exploration of the human need to be heard.
