Customs, traditions, etiquette and ethics

Our day-to-day behaviour has always been influenced as much by social standards, customs and notions of correctness as by logic, philosophy or decree. From the way we dress to the way we greet one another, from local customs to globally accepted social norms, from what is deemed a peccadillo to what is condemned as perversion, this forum welcomes discussion on the many ways we have behaved throughout history and the rules by which we did and do.

Sport and Pastimes

If war is a continuation of politics by other means then surely sport has proven itself to be the continuation of both. From the dusty plains of classical Greece to ancient Mayan temple complexes, from the playing fields of Eton and village greens as far afield as Boston and Bangalore to side streets and alleys from London to Lagos, the compunction to kick, punch, throw, run, jump and shoot for amusement has closely paralleled human warfare in terms of the passion and tribalism it invokes, and of course the determination to compete and win which it engenders. Whether innocent game-playing or deadly gamesmanship, this is the forum to discuss our long and often, it must be said, not-so-sporting participation in these activities.

Health, medicine and care

The human race's common struggle for survival has led to a tradition of healthcare which can be traced back to the very roots of the race's own existence. This forum welcomes topics related to how that care has been administered, how its need has been identified and how its importance has been recognised throughout our species' long tenure on this earth.
