Abstract: JORDAN – While political conflicts have dominated almost all discourses around the region of West Asia, narratives have remained ensnared by political and religious frameworks. Thus the people in West Asia remain entrapped within politically driven explanations to answer questions about peace and conflict, Islamism, authoritarianism, security, stability etc. Unfortunately, even cultural, historical, philosophical, psychological and archaeological aspects of human civilization in this region were to a great extent framed to serve only political explanations. This has led to minimizing the complexity of the fabric of these societies.
