Although the author revealed his unsatisfaction toward mechanistic interpretation, he approaches his argument in a scientific way to counter his audience, who may still disagree with him based on the scientific fact of superiority in intelligent of humans over the animals.
Genetic analysis should be used freely in society, but only to help those who actually need it. The movie advocates the rules of your genetic makeup which leads to certain opportunities being presented to certain people with higher pedigrees than other. If a person's genetic makeup is sub-par you are unable to obtain your goals in life. While this is not true in the real world it could become a possibility in the future. The movie gives evidence of how your genetic makeup could affect who you love, what jobs you get, and expose you to certain discriminations in your life.
Under the circumstance Thoreau describes I do believe that civil disobedience is a duty. However, I think that Thoreau greatly exaggerates the conditions he was in at the time and takes a very narrow view of his setting. I agree with Thoreau's arguments that when the government is to the point of falling apart and harming citizens then people need to revolute against the government. I particularly like his analogy to the friction in the machine, symbolizing that the ends do not justify the means. Furthermore, I think that Thoreau is correct in pointing out how people behave when they notice something is wrong, but take no action to fix it.
Despite the general acceptance of the term in modern times, Mestizo still carries the weight of another way to categorize people and further divide humanity. Race is a culturally constructed label that coarsely describes differences between individuals. This definition falls in line with modern day racialists, since they believe that every race has an essence that can be individually interpreted and studied. Racism on the other hand, negatively reinforces and makes race categories
Despite Tom and Myrtle being trapped characters, the author was able reveal fundamental truths about society from their point of limited freedom. Nonetheless, these truths clashed as a result of them being extracted by a member of society. The marriages in The Great Gatsby are superficial but we cannot consider them true; therefore, the resulting message is a synthesis of these two aspects. Furthermore, Fitzgerald’s critique of society is an exemplar for all writers who wish to do so because in it, he effectively demonstrates the effects of societal influence on the critique. It is no wonder that artists who attack society often exclude themselves from it; they are trying to limit how they become influenced.
In this section Kinsman writes on the issue of the negative social construction surrounding homosexuality. To begin his section of the text Kinsman criticizes and analyzes Marx and the previously mentioned Engles experience and perspectives, which influenced their stance on gender and sexuality. Kinsman explains that due to the time where they were born and how most of the founding fathers of Marxism perceived the world around them sexuality just wasn't as important to the whole of society. Marx' status as a white, straight, male put him right in the sweet spot of societal naturalism. This meant that problems of sexuality and sometimes race did not apply to his perspectives or theories.
This means that in order for a species to be overpopulated it has to be favored or have an advantage over its competitors in some way. If one species is favored over all the other species in the same ecosystem, the population will increase rapidly. Every species and organism in the same ecosystem will interact and compete with each other. Darwin says that all organisms are “...all striving to increase, and all feeding on each other”. The growth of one species is determined by all of the other species living in the same ecosystem, acting as each other’s checks.
1. Explain why evolution often selects traits that promote genetic diversity. Evolution often selects traits that promote genetic diversity because genetic diversity boosts the chances that at least some members of the population will have a combination of traits that will allow them to survive and reproduce in a changing environment. Organisms that rely on asexual reproduction have virtually identical offspring, and they are successful in a stable environment; however, conditions rarely remain constant on Earth.
With the increase of fossil records individuals were able to find some of the transitional stages in human evolution that Darwin has talked about. The relevance of Darwin’s discovery today is that “The theory of evolution and natural selection not only changed the way we look at biology and other organisms, but altered the way we view of ourselves and the place we have in this universe” (www.muhlenberg.edu). In today’s day and age, one is able to refer back to Darwin's discovery and look at biology and other organisms in a different way. One of the major reasons why Charles Darwin is relevant today is because many anthropologists have been able to learn from his theory and be able to determine what makes us human by studying non - human primates and their evolution over time. Therefore I believe that Charles Darwin is the most influential anthropologist, as his theory proved to revolutionize the field of anthropology and question people’s beliefs, he paved the way for future anthropologists and future study, and he is relevant today due to his discovery of human evolution.
Intersectionality, as defined by the book is the, “overlap between multiple identity categories” (Sarah & Jones, 2018). To clarify, this the way that multiple spheres of identities come together to form the coinciding identity of a person; each singular identity grants the person more or less privilege. An example of this would be that a person who identifies as a Straight, female, Latina faces different privileges and inequalities then a person who identifies as a white, Transgender, male (Sarah & Jones, 2018). Being a person who identifies as the sex they were assigned at birth, allows for more privilege over someone who does not. On the other hand, being white puts the other person at an advantage over the Latina due to race being a huge
Intersectionality is the idea that when certain group identities that have similar systems of oppression merge together, they form a group that is fundamentally different as a whole than from their respective groups. In the case of the Mexicans and the Filipinos and their involvement in the “United Farm Workers of America”, it proved to hinder the alliance that the two groups had with each other. Because of their differences in race and the language barrier, there was a divide that had formed between the two groups; the Mexicans were more favored in the union. The Mexicans were more represented and usually were tended to first, which was apparent when it came to power and money in the union. As a result, the Filipinos were often neglected when
In “Intersectional Resistance and Law Reform,” Dean Spade proposes that the United States was founded through “racialization…(which) continues to operate under new guises… that produce, manage, and deploy gender categories and sexuality and family norms” (16). More over, these laws and norms tend to maintain the “status quo,” and employ an inherently flawed justice system that is only equipped to address single-axis discrimination issues (5). Thus, the intersectionality movement is largely dismissed by the social and justice systems, as it utilizes “critical intersectional tools… that are often (too) difficult for legal scholars to comprehend” (17). Interstionality’s progress is also impeded by advocates leaving to support single-axis issues. However, Spade warns that this approach is ineffective, as it fails to protect the most marginalized members of society.
