Marriage and Family Exam 1 Study Guide Winter 2012 Brother Richardson What did we define as: “a model, pattern, or frame of reference ?” What did we define as: “ a mental view , outlook, or prospect?” What did we define as: “ world’s view , outlook, or shared set of assumptions ?” What term was defined as “to take in with the mind; observe” or “to thoroughly grasp?” The Medieval Latin perspectivus (the root for the English perspective ) offers a good visual definition of what a perspective actually means. The Latin has two parts: per and specere. Specere means “to look.” What does per- mean? When the Spanish philosopher J. Ortega y Gasset said, “We do not know what is happening to us and that is precisely what is happening to us—the fact of not knowing what is happening to us,” What idea was he referring to? A perspective, paradigm, and zeitgeist are so much part of our way of thinking, perceiving, and understanding the world that we may not even realize that we have adopted a predominant personal or world view. If we are removed from that view, however, we struggle to survive and make sense of the world around us. What metaphor did we use in class to describe the power of how a perspective, paradigm, and/or zeitgeist might affect us? According to our class discussion and readings what is the significance of socioeconomics, politics, legal provisions and protection, cultural approval, sexual fulfillment, emotional satisfaction, and personal development in regards to marriage and families? Elder Bednar said, “We frequently speak about and highlight marriage as a fundamental unit of society, as the foundation of a strong nation, and as a vital sociological and cultural institution.” What did Elder Bednar say that illustrates the LDS perspective of marriage? What did Elder Russell M. Nelson say was the “first step” for those who are married or will be married who desire a “more joyful marriage?” How did we define doctrines in class (according to Elder Bruce R. McConkie)? What have we been calling “that form of marriage which God has ordained”?
