In January, we celebrate the life & legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., a shining example of the best and brightest values of post-modernity through his work in the civil rights movement.

Never have these values been so eloquently expressed in the movement of the human spirit than in MLK’s ‘I Have A Dream’ speech.

It took our species perhaps millions of years and a momentously great deal of struggle to finally grasp and attempt to live these ideals. How did humanity grow to this level?

Here, Dr. Michael Cotton gives context on the rise to post-modernity through a historical overview of human development, as well as individual development that, contrary to popular opinion, does not stop at childhood.
