James Duran East vs. West - The Myths That Mystify: 1. According to the story of Ganesha, explain the difference between “the world” and “my world.” ‘The world’ is objective, logical, universal, factual, scientific. ‘My world’ is subjective. It’s emotional, personal. It’s perceptions, thoughts, feelings, dreams. It’s the belief system that we carry. 2. What is culture and how does Pattanaik explain that “my world” is always better than “your world?” Culture is a reaction to nature. ‘My world’ is always better than ‘your world’ because my world, you see, is rational, and yours is superstition. 3. Explain how Alexander and the gymnosophist each came to have differing viewpoints. Both of them were told different stories. Their ‘worlds’ were different from each other. 4. Discuss how mythology and culture influences the way different people conduct business. If mythology and culture influences their behavior, it will influence their business. They way that they think and believe will also go with their business.

    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.
