Michael Samuels 9/10/07 Sociology 001 Critically Thinking Chapter 2 1. Do you favor ethnocentrism or cultural relativism? Explain your position. I think human nature makes you favor ethnocentrism but personally or rather ideally, I would favor cultural relativism. It is important to understand culture and people within that culture. As said in the book on the surface, bull fighting may seem wrong, but to those people of that culture it is a way of life and an activity they grew up participating in. All cultures are different, and it is best to be understanding and open to ideas/concepts that are different than yours. 2. Do you think that the language change in Miami, Florida, (Discussed on page 45) is an indicator of the future of the United States of America? Why or Why Not? Fundamentally I do not believe it is an indicator of the future of the US. I’ve read many statistics showing when Spanish will become the language most spoken by people of the United States but I do not see this actually coming to fruition.

What students are saying

    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.
