Term paper1.237 Words / ~ pages The socialized child Briefly outline theories of socialization­. What limitations do they have for understanding children and childhood? According to Clarke (2004, p. 77) today’s definition of socialization “is the learning of the norms, values and accepted behaviours of the particular society in which a person lives”.

Abstract1.107 Words / ~3 pages Werkimanenter­/äst­hetis­cher Ansatz: Magdalena, die Sünderin, ist die Protagonistin in diesem Roman. Sie ist eine äußerst selbstbewusst­e Frau, die gegen das Unglück und die Natur der Männer ankämpft. Dabei ist ihr jedes Mittel recht. Magdalena ist eine schöne Frau und entspricht nicht der Norm.

Man sollte sie keinesfalls als kaltblütige Mörderin abstempeln, das wäre viel zu einfach. Man braucht den Hintergrund der Geschichte und dieser wiegt schwer, jedoch trotzdem keine Entschuldigun­g. Die Frau mit dem rotblonden, langen Haar, ein Gesicht, das man nie vergisst. Magdalena vollzieht eine Abrechnung mit den Männern. Sie tötet die, die ihr…[show more]

Us humans rely on our ways of knowledge and ways of thinking to help us get through daily life and to do the simplest things. We all have distinctive qualities which define us but what we all have in common is the capability to use our knowledge to the best of our abilities.
