JEAN MONNET MODULE

You can reach the syllabus of the course here: GRA_020_Art and culture as a means of EU integration and co-existence

Midterm paper:

In his iconic article, Samuel P. Huntington discusses “The Clash of Civilization” and he states that the West needs to develop a more profound understanding of the basic religious and philosophical assumptions underlying other civilizations. The most remarkable part of his conclusion is “For the relevant future, there will be no universal civilization, but instead a world of different civilizations, each of which will have to learn to coexist with the others.”

Please describe the approach of Mr. Huntington to the issue of clash of civilizations and discuss if art should have a role in this learning process of coexisting with the others.
