C'est la vie: An Introduction

“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive.         – The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
Living in the post-global financial crisis era with frenetic, perpetual and consequential changes, we have a vision to provide an avenue to challenge assumptions and common held beliefs and bring to the foreground and the fray the insights from the emerging sciences of human nature.

We have become disillusioned by current paradigms of economics and the social sciences in explaining and expounding the human condition. We have become dissatisfied with the banality of the binary system of politics and policy, between that of laissez-faire capitalism and Marxist socialism. We have become disenfranchised from the debate and discussion happening in society about the past, present and future.

This is where we shall put forward and bequeath our idea.What will ensue will be an eclectic mingling of opinion editorials, academic articles and a dialogue that will examine the very condition we, as the species Homo sapiens, maintain and exist within.

Thence, here we present, in what we hope will prove to be an insightful and prolific endeavour, Reciprocans.
