ANT 101 Week 1 DQ 1 Cultural Relativism

For more course tutorials visit

Cultural Relativism. Cultural Anthropology gives three distinct meanings of cultural relativism: a moral stance that requires anthropologists to suspend moral and ethical judgments when interacting with a culture different from their own, a methodological strategy that allows the anthropologist to pay specific attention to the uniqueness of a culture, and an epistemological position that cultures are unique and therefore knowledge about different cultures is almost inherently not comparable. (Sec. 1.3).

Foraging Societies. Answer one of the following four questions posed by Nowak and Laird, in Cultural Anthropology, at the very end of Chapter 3:

Doing Business with Family. Nowak and Laird's Applying Anthropology 6.2 box, in Cultural Anthropology, proposes the following question:

The familiar saying “never do business with family” advises against the practices used in many of the chiefdom societies discussed in this chapter. This old saying implies that doing business with family will create conflict, whereas chiefdom societies welcome and encourage such close-knit economic exchanges as a way of preventing conflict.

Monumental Architecture. What does monumental architecture imply about the cultural values and the socio-economic-political organization of the society that created it?

Do a bit of Internet research on religious or secular monuments, statues, and architectural wonders in your city, state, country, or internationally. Choose a monument (or set of monuments), describe its main features, discuss any symbolism it has, and analyze the messages it sends to its intended audience(s). Provide a link to an image of the monument itself for the rest of us to see.
