The Four Questions

The 4 Questions artist book by Dan Rose
The 4 Questions artist book by Dan Rose

The Four Questions cry out for a ritual asking, day after day, year after year even though it is an artist book. The first question, How should we humans think of ourselves as a whole from this moment forward? suggests that artists, scientists, religious persons, politicians, and all of us should expand our horizons, should ask ourselves who we are, all of us taken together. Perhaps the ritual might turn us into beings more aware of some vast, common destiny.
