2 Being a Person… Some things to look for in Ernestine  McHugh’s book: nature of the person nature of the social (the ethic of exchange) Look for how these two things permeate  different domains of culture and social life: religion kinship & family a person’s life

3 Elements of a “Person”: The Physical & the  Meaningful “Honor is passed through blood and  bone.  It is physical, inherited, essential,  yet it must be enacted to be socially real,  through gifts and hospitality, through  power and ownership.  It is inherited,  yet must be cultivated.  It is essential,  yet can be lost.”

6 The heart-mind (sae) :  located in the center of the chest :  the seat of feeling, memory, and of consciousness :  not a philosophical concept, but a day to day reality fainting: heart-mind went into forgetfulness forgetting:   looking for a memory and finds that it is  not in the heart-mind aggrieved: the heart-mind hurts joyful:   happiness in the heart-mind

    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.
