It also states, “I too had become a different person. The student of Talmud, the child I was, had been consumed by the flames”(Wiesel 39). These quote show the influence of the human interactions in the concentration camp. The interactions between humans in the camp shaped Elie Wiesel’s point of view towards the God and his dream because of the destitute situation of the concentration camp and the interactions with cruel SS guards and other prisoners. The extreme human interactions in the camp also changed
In this rationale I will be discussing the Bauhaus movement during its Weimar and Dessau periods and how political, social and economic factors aspects have affected this design school as a whole. I will also be comparing and analysing the characteristics and two examples (mention example) of each period to display my understanding by applying my knowledge to my redesigns. Here are a few key concepts that will be mentioned in this rationale: Bauhaus was an institution in Germany where artistic students could come together and be creative with fine art and craft. It began in 1919 after the First World War but was closed by the Nazi regime in 1933. The word Bauhaus stood for "house of construction".
Others seem to be highly dependent on culture, such as social meaning or particular styles of expression. In the process of understanding the therapeutic value of an occupation for a patient, it would seem that one would need to first understand his or her cultural background. Embedded in the sociocultural order are notions of acceptable and unacceptable occupations that are usually linked to status, race, class, gender, and age (Bourdieu, 1977; D. K. Kondo, 1990; Wilcock, 2006; Zemke & Clark, 1996). Examples of cultural influences on occupation are ubiquitous. For example, gender roles in some cultures are rigidly set, such that women and men may have more or less restricted choice of productive (work) roles.
Holland also suggested that the personality of the student or his/her interest may vary from the work environment, for example, an artistic person will most likely be part of an artistic circle or community rather than being realistic. From this idea, we now understand the concept of the familiarity of the individual to his/her environment, for example, Grade 10 students that are more inclined to politics and socioeconomic studies will most likely fall under Humanities and Social Science (HUMSS) Strand thus concluding that interest will affect the decision of the student in choosing a strand. On the other hand in Albert Bandura’s Social Learning Theory, it is stated that an individual learns through our environment and social context. We learned from one another as we decided to observed people around us. If we see a positive feedback towards other people’s action, we tend to imitate it, thus, influencing us to do the same thing in a given circumstance, either to be rewarded based on this action or to be a better version of our self.
It is based on the foundation that humans are inherently social creatures, and so, have a need to form social bonds and interconnected relationships. Those bonds are realized through a common set of shared beliefs, values, and ideas to create what he called a collective consciousness (Durkheim, 1933). This common conscience in turn is held by all members of a society, and has its own laws independent of individual conscience (Morrison, 1995). In other words, there is a shared set of values which is unique to the society, and which is instilled in all members of that society, regardless of their individual expression of those values, thereby devaluing the influence of free-will. Thus, because the impetus to form a society stems from the most basic human instinct, Durkheim believes that individuals have a passive role in shaping it, because it is driven from animalistic drive, and programmed within humans at the biological level.
Convinced that the home and furniture should have a sound relationship at the Bauhaus; they attempt to determine the form of each object according to its functions and natural constraints. The interior decoration was designed and built by the Bauhaus students. The metal workshop designed and manufactured all the lighting elements for the new
Human relations formed in the process of production are the basis for the formation of the society. The entire social structure consists of the base and the superstructure together called as socio-economic formation. In the mode of production there are two opposites that create struggle. This struggle itself is the motive force of the process development of the human
Abstract Whether it is a house, apartment, bungalow or some other dwelling, homes are very important to the people who live in them. The architectural design of these homes often times can affect how we behave and how we relate to others. This study focuses on how the architectural design of houses impacts social behavior. It looks to symbolic interactionism to examine this topic further and finds that, people who live in homes that have been designed to take into consideration their personal preferences will be happier because, architecture reflects and expresses self, architectural symbols affect our environment, and designed physical buildings act as agents that invite self-reflection. To examine this topic, research of existing sources
These ideas then create behaviors that influence and form a society. People influence each other through social relationships, which consequently play a role in ethics and validity. Sociology studies, social cultures in ways which affect or add value to a group which in turn affects quality of life. “Utopia,” is an ideal society which has no problems, today our world operates with injustice and differences which cause a “dystopia,” kind of society. Sociology involves different aspects concerns and values of a group which make up some of the key components in the field of sociology.
Moreover, any group of people who share a common culture, specifically common rules of behavior and a basic form of social organization, constitutes a society. These statements prove that culture and society come together in anthropological studies.
