Here is our first discussion
question. Choose ONE of the options below to respond to and please
indicate which option you have chosen in your response.
the story Rosaldo tells about how the Ilongots reacted to his Vietnam
War draft notice, discuss how the concept of “mental maps of reality” in
Guest p. 38-40 relates to ethnocentrism and cultural relativism.
Interpret the following quotation from the Rosaldo article: “In Java,
Geertz tells us, they have a saying: ‘The person is not yet human.’ But
the way they say it is: ‘The person is not yet Javanese.'” How does this
quotation relate to the concept of culture employed by anthropologists?
Hint: Look up the concept of culture in Guest before answering this
question, particularly the role anthropologists believe culture plays in
shaping us as individuals and as a species.
