under the banner "cultural respect" when in fact it is something that should be condemned without reservation. An excellent example is the practice, in Muslim societies, of removing the clitoris from young girls as they reach sexual maturity, b/c it is deemed "a sin" by those societies. The far greater sin is that we stand by and allow such abhorrent behavior without recognizing that NO CULTURAL RELEVANCE makes it an acceptable practice. Basic human decency demands that such practices be outlawed everywhere. Culture o Ideals define/ways of life of certain group o Think nature that is being discussed/shaped Learned, shared, knowledge o Learned and shared knowledge generates behavior Generates meaning receive or get value out of it Allow to interpret experience Create meaning out of your life Understand impact (shared) o The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively. o Defined as the shared patterns of behaviors and interactions, cognitive constructs, and affective understanding that are learned through a process of socialization. These shared patterns identify the members of a culture group while also distinguishing those of another group.

    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.
