As to the cultural thought, culture may be a complicated issue in some fields like sociology, anthropology and currently become a hot topic in management. A handful of contributions are devoted during this space by some authors, like Hofstede (1997), Hall (1976, referred by Richardson and Smith, 2007 cited by he & Liu, 2010), Golbe (2004). It is not a debate to mention that Hofstede’s dimensions of national culture theory may be a dominant theory. Despite the fact that lots of individuals call into question Hofstede’s theory and his knowledge are out of time (Holden, 2002, p20 cited by he & Liu, 2010), however, the info of dimensions of national culture is not a definite quantity however relative values.

However, there has been growing demands for significant modification and reforms of bureaucratic structure given that “it ignores the issue of collective interest and of the role of public power in contemporary society”.

Rather, he suggests that liberalism – democracy and market capitalism – had become more popular. Supporting the notion that Fukuyama was not correct in suggesting that the end of the Cold War was in fact the end of history, it is notable that Fukuyama later revealed his thesis was incomplete stating, "there can be no end of history without an end of modern natural science and technology", and later again in 2006 that his argument was misunderstood, (Bendle 2012) this concedes that his original assumptions were not
Name: Tutor: Course: Date: Infallibilism The philosophical term infallibilism is the argument that knowledge needs individuals to satisfy some level of infallibilism condition. However, the aspectsinfallibilism and fallibilism are often used in the literature of epistemology. Both terms are rarely defined and because of this, they receive diversified meanings that an individual may find the statements to be contradicting. All epistemologists virtually endorse the aspect of fallibilism. Despite the dramatic variations in the substantive accounts of the epistemologists, they accept that the Gettier Problem can only be solved when a belief is not conflicted with warranty and false, which is the definition of infallibilism.
What is science? To answer the question if sociology is a science or not, first we need to know what is science, otherwise the question does not make much sense. Actually current ph ilosophical views on the nature of science is diverse, and largely liberalized from previous views. First, they no longer accept strong criteria of falsification as a scientific method. There are several ways to formulate falsification, but her e I mean something like this: scientific theories should make observable predictions and we should discard a theory if we find only one discrepancy between a prediction of the theory and an observation.

Humanities focuses on the human race as a whole and how they act or respond to different scenarios. While it is still taught throughout the United states in its universities, humanities, according to Thomas Frank, is beginning to wane away ever since the 1980s. He is determined to not let college humanities drop away from view, however does it in a manner that almost washes his core argument away. In this essay, “Course Corrections”, Frank argument is overshadowed by his overuse of pathos with barley any logos used and his ethos mostly containing politicians rather than those with a humanities background.

Reflective Essay on “World is Flat” Usually, When we say “World Is Flat” does not sound literal, hence, we assume it as a false statement, evermore, a long time ago, scientist have had already discovered that the World is round and not flat. However, at the moment, I am reflecting on a video posted at “YouTube.com” by famous American Economist “Thomas Friedman” titled as “ World is Flat”. Friedman actually is describing about globalization, and relaying message, how world is changing its shape, and how trade and technology has connected all of us together. Also, explains role technology’s enhancement in globalization, and how people are getting freed from barriers of border and walls beside them are falling and how new generation is getting in, in a platform of mutual benefit and connectivity. Further, Friedman presents his idea of different versions of globalization, based on different eras.
According to Wikipedia, synthesis refers to a combination of two or more entities that together form something new; alternately, it refers to the creating of something by artificial means. According to Donald Schon (1983), suggested that the capacity to reflect on action so as to engage in a process of continuous learning was one of the defining characteristics of professional practice. He argued that the model of professional training which Donald Schon (1983), termed "Technical Rationality” of charging students up with knowledge in training schools so that they could discharge when they entered the world of practice, perhaps more rightly termed a "battery" model has never been a particularly good description of how professionals "think in action", and is quite inappropriate to practice in a fast-changing
For example, on the Lake Superior State University list, there are some words and phrases that might cause some confusion to people who are unfamiliar with their usage.
