Understanding the world through accessible cultural resources

Using accessible cultural resources to understand the world is not a new concept. It is, however, a complex and multi-layered activity with historical routes in many different aspects of the sciences. The activity is clearly subjective, both in terms of the research subject and the cultural resources accessed. My cultural reflections span a period from the early 1960s to the present.  I will try to structure this article by firstly outlining some of the personal cultural inflection points that influenced my choice of subject matter to research, and give a brief outline of the areas I spent time researching. Secondly, I will outline the type of cultural resources that I used for my research and, to conclude, I will reflect on how accessing cultural resources has, and still does, positively influenced my life.
