Sociology- Lecture 4 Us vs. Them Ethnocentrism- belief in the superiority of one’s own culture and society and using that belief to judge others Calling sociologists ethnocentric- makes them one of “them” Sahlis- wrote about Hawaii Captain Cook arrived on Hawaii when the Hawaiians were celebrating the God of Birth holiday. Profesor of Princeton- Gananath Obeyesekere- He was sitting in the audience when Sahlis was giving his lecture. He was Sri Lankan and didn’t like Sahlis’ story. “It was a white man’s myth about how savages think. He didn’t find any evidence for it.” He investigated Hawaii and looked closely at Sahlis’ story. How did the white explorer become God to savages? Sahlis’ accounts were overdetermined by Western ship notes. There is good reason not to accept this account on face value.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
