Thematic Dialectic and Cultural Contextualism

To write a book expounding Pi's original theory which views the development of the ethos of a culture as a sustained interplay of cultural themes and ideals. PI has labelled this interplay thematic dialectic and views it as a motive force in the development of a cultural tradition. The notion of thematic dialectic should be a useful instrument for implementing cultural contextualism, that is, the art of interpreting and understanding human endeavors in the cultural context of their origin and development.
