The Cynodictis Project is an ongoing exploration of Dogs — their history and evolution and our ongoing relationship with them. Of all the animals we domesticated we only bnrought one into our homes. OK, it's about dogs. But why is it called the Cynodictis Project?
The great A.J. Liebling once quoted the fourteenth-century Arab scholar Ibn Khaldûn, author of The Muqaddimah: An Introduction to History, a monumental work of social history and analysis, in a collection of essays on boxing. Khaldûn expresses the fundamental tentativeness of all knowledge, the deep skepticism achieved by Arab historians and gin-scented journalists alike.
The Muqaddimah is a narrative encyclopedia that explores the foundations of several fields of knowledge including economics (and the pivotal role of specilized crafts in society), sociology, ethnography and the philosophy of history. It's worth reading today 700 hundred years after it was written.
