Perhaps one of the most eloquent expositions ever of the beauty of ancient cultures and the debate over ‘progress’ versus so-called ‘primitive’ thought. In this recent lecture, anthropologist Wade Davis takes you on a non-stop, two hour journey, taking in the shamanic cultures of the Amazon, Voodoo rituals of Haiti, the aboriginal culture of Australia, the bodhisattvas of Tibet, and the resilient Inuit cultures of the north, amongst others. Enjoy:

Davis’s new book The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World is available from Amazon US and UK (great cover image).
