Exploring Cultural Diversity in Mirror for Man

- Exploring Cultural Diversity in Mirror for Man Why do men do the things they do. Professor Kluckhohn attempts to explore, define and explain the answer to this complex question in one brief passage. He reasons that we are all given the same basic biological "tools" at birth, so it should follow then, that we should all behave in similar ways. But, because of "culture", defined as "the total life way of a people", we do not react to similar situations in exactly the same way. Culture is the main reason we can not explain other people's actions "in terms of biological properties."

The Modern Welfare State of the 1906-1914

- The Modern Welfare State of the 1906-1914 Before 1906, the British governments had little involvement in the everyday lives of the people: Gladstone in particular advocated the policies of ‘self help’ and Lassiez-faire’- the government should have minimal interference in the lives of citizens. However, from 1906 onwards, the British public began to benefit from a number of reforms such as pensions and childcare which they had never received before. Whether this could be described as the beginnings of the welfare state depends on the perspective: certainly government involvement increased but these reforms didn’t affect every citizen in all areas of life, suggesti...   [tags: Papers]
