STUDY GUIDE SPRING APY 105 DENTAN FINAL In what sense does the educational system described by the rightist American John Gatto (and, much later, by the leftist Brazilian Paulo Freire whom you should read sometime) reflect and perpetuate the implicit and usually unconscious assumptions of Gesellschaft “culture as given”? Discuss 4 differences between social relationships in Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft societies. Name one Gemeinschaft society and one Gesellschaft society you know about and explain why they fit these categories. According to the book Neanderthals, Bandits, and Farmers, Tudge states that agriculture is “obviously beastly.” What does Tudge mean by “beastly”? And if it is, why did agriculture begin at all? What happened to the Neanderthals in the process? Beastly because it is hard work, but it works. What did in the Neanderthals, according to Colin Tudge? Fieldwork in anthropology consists of characteristics such as humility, intensity, holism, and comparison. Explain all of these in relation to fieldwork, pick at least two examples from Dr. Dentan’s fieldwork with the Semai. Anthropology can sometimes be a ‘romanticized’ field within the social sciences. What are some of the difficulties that anthropologists can face while in the field? Are these difficulties merely physical? Please use examples. How did the Industrial Revolution forever change human society? Consider the lives of the working class, the lives of the ruling class, and the environment. How does the Industrial Revolution relate to the concept of mini-maxing and the system of scientific management you saw in the movie Clockwork ? What does Dr. Dentan mean by the phrase “ignorance is not randomly distributed”? What role does this phenomenon play in your “culture as given” and “culture as choice”? You’ve now had an entire semester in which to critically examine your own culture. What is one thing that your culture tells you to do that doesn’t really make sense? Why do you do it, and why doesn’t it make sense? What are the 4 stages of revitalization movements?
