The concept of Survival is generally traced to Charles Darwin and the natural sciences, to the understanding of the human as a species interconnected with other life.  Survival also means to persevere and this connects us to all the ways in which history, memory, and knowledge is passed on through human artifacts and technological innovations.  Survival is, thus, both archeology, i.e., it looks into the past, as well as contemplates possible futures.  It brings together the arts, humanities, sciences, and social science.
