Report1.094 Words / ~ pages Lahti University of Applied Sciences German Culture Introduction Culture is a system of shared beliefs, values, customs, behaviors, and artifacts that the members of a society use to cope with their world and with one another, and that are transmitted from generation through learning. (Bates and Plog, 1990) Culture is what determines how we act and behave and what values and social morals we have. Thus it is very important to understand the culture of a person in order to understand why the person is behaving the way her is and to be able to act carefully around her. We often know the High culture, which includes the fine arts, theater, music and literature. We also often know the Folk culture, which is comprised of the religion, the cooking, humor or popular music. But what is often only revealed when being in contact with the culture for a longer time is their Deep culture…[show more]

Interpretation1.205 Words / ~6 pages Hebron University -hebron The Dual Self in the Flesh and the Spirit by Anne Bradstreet Hebron University - English Department American Literature (22324) The Flesh and the Spirit The Dual Self In “The Flesh and the Spirit” by Anne Bradstreet, it is clear that the poet is influenced by the principles and beliefs of Puritans (“Anne Bradstreet: The Flesh and the Spirit”). “Bradstreet presents the idea of the Dual self which indicates the never ending conflict between the good and the bad sides as two sisters. The two sisters that the speaker overhears represent the two opponent aspects of the Puritan self” (“Anne Bradstreet: The Flesh and the Spirit”). In fact, what is meant by Flesh is “body” and what is meant by Spirit is “soul” (Aschoff, 2007). The Flesh represents the “tangible earthly items” such as “diamonds”, “pearls”, and “gold”. All of these items are…[show more]

Describe and include if there was a president who did this. The set of laws passed in the late 1860s and 1870s, gave the President enough authority to wipe out racial discriminatio­n.

Ydermere bringer Høi også sine egne tanker på banen, når han sår tvivl om funktionalite­ten af det amerikanske ”Class B-airspace”, som er den mest strikse og regulerede type luftrum i USA.

Reflection1.795 Words / ~5 pages Albert-Ludwigs Universität Freiburg 2 Albert-Ludwig­s-Uni­vers­itaet Freiburg i. Br. Englisches Seminar SoSe 2014 MS: Cultural Theory Dozentin: Laura Bieger Louis Althusser from ‘Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses’ In his extract from Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses (1970), the French Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser seeks to understand the way ideology works in society. Drawing on the work of Jacques Lacan, he approximates ideology to Lacan’s understanding of ‘reality’, the world the individual constructs around him after his entrance to the ‘symbolic order’, a concept that I will clarify later in this response paper. Louis Althusser extends Marx’s understanding of the relation between structure and superstructur­e by adding his concept of Ideological State Apparatuses. At the beginning of the extract, he defines the Ideological…[show more]
Travelogue1.985 Words / ~ pages Karlstad Intercultural Communication­. Advice to how to survive in Sweden. Dear friend, I’ve heard that you will be in Sweden next semester. The University asked me if I could give you some advice to have a good start in Sweden. So I will write down some of the experiences I’ve had so far when entering this country: If you come from a religious country or if you’re interested in religion in a general way, you are going to be surprised here. Indeed you will see a lot of churches in the cities (Protestant, CatholicsR­30;).­ However if you enter them on a Sunday morning you will feel a little bit lonely… As a matter of fact the rate of attendance at mass is relatively low (2%). Nevertheless around 80% of Swedes consider themselves as Lutherans. I was so curious about that when I arrived here. Indeed this reminded me of my…[show more]
