In the story Tess of the d'Urbervilles, religion to shown to put a barrier from one to reach out to someone based on how they are viewed in society. Religion is meant to bring people together as a whole, but many use religion to judge if you are good person or not. In the story, Hardy uses religion to show that people can be hypocritical through religion because people are just blindly following rules by following their own religion too closely, which is eventually leading them to forget the basic morals of life. Throughout the story, Hardy showed that the Victorian society was very strong in following the rules to be the stronger believer of Christianity. These rules from the story were setting the barrier between people in the old religion and the ones from the new religion.
Your environment shapes your experiences. Personally, living in a region where the climate has mild summers and harsh winters one can physically see the differences. Someone who may live in another region with a hot and dry climate experiences life in different ways than others do who have learned to adapt to living in a different environment. Religion is also an important aspect of life that was greatly influenced by climate experienced by Native Americans. Their practices vary from tribe to tribe because of the life experiences the Native Americans had due to the differences in climate.
Foley and Lahr actually discuss some of the differences for this also, citing things like the environment and variance in access to resources (Foley and Lahr). For example, if one culture had access to a difference resource than another nearby culture, a cultural difference could develop. The researchers also state that if a culture has a high probability of geographical isolation, a higher level of diversity is more likely to develop (Foley and Lahr). As an example, a community located high in the mountains with very little way to get around the geographic feature and a community located on a flat plain will eventually develop very different
It might be too cold or too hot or too wet, which in turn had affected on the quality of human life, because animal and plant life also changed, with the amount of basic food was sharp decreased. In other words, climate changes and the sensory perceptions played a major role in relocation in ancient times. Next, when society began develop, people also migrated by individual reasons. But with the same motivation: to live in better conditions. There were conflicts over land use or hunting rights, later it was more deep and moral reasons, such as religion and race discrimination.
It would be beneficial if Diamond were to include a section of culture as well as geography in his book. Diamond might not think that culture is important and that it has not shaped todays world but it is the most important part of the world. Do to different cultures people around the world experience life differently. The spread of culture has impacted many societies. It has changed the way people do things around the world.
I believe that different cultures must know what is right and what is wrong to do. Cultures are said to be different but if we look at them closely we can actually find that they are not so much different from one’s own culture. Religion for example is a right given to us and that many cultures around the world practices. Of course there are different types of religion but they all are worshipped and practice among the different culture. Rachels says that “different cultures have different moral codes” and I believe that is true what might be okay in one culture could be absolutely immoral in another.
Effects on culture and society on the behaviour of an individual, relates to people from different social economic groups will share different aspects of culture for example, having a different understanding of the concept of money, and how treating elders with respect. A different culture, comes with a different conduct, customs and rules, the extent to which morals from individual’s perspectives who believe in a different culture can cause controversy with another who believes that what they are doing should be socially accepted. Culture can shape our behaviour as individuals are raised to believe that there is certain way to live your life and have different views on what is right and wrong, which can restrict children from making friends outside of their social circle built upon their culture, stopping children from developing an understanding of others cultures. A multi-cultural school could encourage cultural diversity which is, is the quality of diverse or different cultures, also refer to having different cultures respect each other's differences. As every culture is seen as equal, therefore able to have access to the same standard of
Barriers may arise when the individual fails to connect with community. They may also be evident due to cultural differences. The Crucible written by Arthur Miller and Shaun Tan’s The Arrival utilise various techniques such as juxtaposition symbolism and metaphors that explore the notions of enriched or limited sense of belonging using characters or real historical contexts to convey the complex nature of belonging. Arthur Miller explores the choices that may improve or create boundaries for a person in a community or place. John Proctor is a conflicted individual in terms of his identity.
Cities and their communities all over the world are confronted by increasing social changes in their global surroundings. These experiences influence societal quality of life and quality of work life, which may possibly affect personal quality of life (Cheung and Leung 2009:460). The influence of society can change the values in individuals and the responses to the changes in values are not always predictable. The values of a single culture can control a large area and can be so influential that those values are considered to be right and consequently supported by communities and the government. But, subcultures can also form and create their own individual influences.
In Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, Gulliver learns that experiencing different cultures and ways of life changes a person’s views when he experiences: outside opinions of his homeland, different everyday customs, and different societal priorities. These three things fundamentally change Gulliver as they change anyone with an open mind. From the king of Brobdingang’s harsh criticism of the British Empire to Lilliput’s seemingly bizarre way of life to the Houyhnhnms’ nearly flawless formula for successful society, Gulliver experiences things that change his outlook on life. In other words the outside opinions of England, different everyday customs, and different societal priorities of the lands Gulliver journeys to change the intelligent and curious Gulliver forever. To begin, Gulliver’s views change when he hears outside opinions of his homeland.
