Here I post articles and reading notes on history and civilisations. I analyze the reasons behind the rise of the West from the 16th century and also study the identity of today’s great civilizations like India, China, Japan, the West etc…

You will find all the publications classified by theme in the Categories section, in the bar on the right of the homepage.

Have a pleasant reading!
