"'Surveying Western Philosophy using China Tools' (33'45"): Western philosophy is thought to have begun along the Ionian coast of Asia Minor in the sixth century B.C. Chinese astrology is thought to have begun in China in the thirtieth century B.C. Would a survey using the tools of an ancient Chinese imperial science give us new and fresh reading of Western philosophy? The year in which a person was born is of singular importance in Chinese astrology as each year is governed by an animal sign. In total there are twelve such animal signs, beginning with the Rat and ending with the Pig. 'Art as Thinking - Thinking as Art' (37'26"): a lecture by Ben Patterson at Liverpool School of Art and Design, 25 November 2003."
