Freud’s theory breaks the psyche up into 3 elements: the id, superego, and ego. The id is said to be the most powerful part, and solely unconscious. It controls our basic drives and is demanding and has no regard for morality, rules, or order. The superego is the smallest element of the psyche and deals with ethics and provides standards for the other elements of personality to abide by. Lastly, the ego is the “middle-man” between the id and the superego, as they tend to conflict.
Qualitative Critique Discussion I will be comparing and contrasting two qualitative studies: (1) an ethnographic study that examined the care and management of women experiencing early miscarriage in a hospital (Murphy & Philpin, 2010); and (2) a phenomenological study focused on the emotional needs of dying patients (Law, 2009). Ethnographers describe and interpret cultural behavior. They collect, describe, categorize, and analyze data. Their goal is to identify patterns in the behavior and thoughts of participants.

This paper will compare two articles related to ethnographic research and the approach taken by modern cultural anthropologists. The question raised in both articles is whether or not a change should be implemented in the accepted method of current standards of writing and recording field research. Additionally these articles question the idea of ethnographies being solely reported through intellectual analyses, and pose the idea of incorporating and taking into account more human emotions, or affect, of the cultures being studied. John Jackson’s paper “On Ethnographic Sincerity” discusses his opinion on why anthropologists need to approach ethnographic research with more sincerity. Ethnography is defined as “practices, methods,
Ethnomusicology is an extension of Anthropology that studies and examines the cultural aspects of music. It is able to relate society to its culture, as well as identifying the significance and situations of the time. This can include studying how the music of a culture has evolved or changed under the influence of tradition, era, location, events in history, religion, and other cultures. Since music in Samoa is used to tell about significant events from the past, it is simple to realize that this can be considered a form of literature that can be interpreted as a way to become familiar with Samoan culture. Ethnomusicology is one of the many ways to evaluate how people interact with each other and their environment to create a musical culture
Perhaps one of the most interesting things about the discipline of anthropology is that the subjects can share their thoughts and opinions in a clear articulate way. Interviews I had the opportunity to interview a young woman, my roommate, about her experiences migrating from China to the U.S. for her education. Whilst speaking with her, I came to two conclusions. Firstly, culture plays a significant role in how people view the value and the administration of education. Secondly, I came to the conclusion that although modern technology has allowed for the globalization of culture, actual immersion into one culture from another is still an extremely difficult transition.
ANTH150 Mini Essay 2: Fieldwork Observation Word Count: 734 I conducted my ethnographic observations over the course of a few days. During my fieldwork observation, I recorded observations of customer behaviour, the general layout of the restaurant, culture significance, and décor. Siam Corner is located in Rouse Hill on Resolution Place. While entering, you can immediately feel the intimate environment of the restaurant and sense the sudden shift from the streets of Sydney to a Thai restaurant. It is viewed as an upscale restaurant with excellent service.
The id refers to a human’s instincts, which would relate to Thoreau’s savage side, and the super-ego refers to the higher, moral side of a human, which would relate to Thoreau’s spiritual side, the ego being the part which balances the two. Another theme which
III: Reflections The interview with Ms. X flowed so easily; it quickly consumed nearly an hour and a half of our time. I felt conviction in my subject and topic choice(-,) but realized that the most daunting task would be trimming the interview to meet the requirements of this assignment. Offering so much that caught and captivated my interest, I was grateful that Ms. X gave me permission to record our interview. During the first few minutes, I realized that if I had to take notes while she was talking, I would not have been nearly as present in the conversation, and would have likely screwed up details later (-on) in the writing process.
An id alone is not sufficient enough to make decisions because it cannot distinguish fantasy and reality. The Id is completely in the unconscious. The Ego, on the other hand, is very in tune with reality. The Ego is responsible for meeting the needs of the Id in a way that complies with reality. It's partly unconscious and uses defense mechanisms to defend itself from sexual and aggressive impulses that may cause anxiety.
In the components of Id they’re stated as the wants and need or otherwise the desires of human nature. Id can surface at different parts of the a person's life, it comes to light at first when your first born, that’s why you’re always so needy because it’s the basic human
If someone was to ask me what anthropology was, prior to this assignment, I would have probably taken an educated guess such as “the study of life”. In a sense that is correct but not entirely accurate. Anthropology is defined as, “The study of human kind in all times and places” (Haviland, Prins, McBride, & Walrath, 2017). After an extensive analyzation of my experiences, I concluded that I don’t practice anthropology in my life enough. In addition, I discovered that my life doesn’t have much diversity in it.
