“Cultures are made of continuities and changes, and the identity of a society can survive through these changes. Societies without change aren't authentic; they're just dead”
Kwame Anthony Appiah

“In short—to overstate the point only slightly—because people don’t really know why they do what they do, they give explanations of their own behavior that are about as reliable as anyone else’s, and in many circumstances actually less so.”
Kwame Anthony Appiah

“A value is like a fax machine: it’s not much use if you’re the only one who has one.”
Kwame Anthony Appiah, The Ethics of Identity
