Furthermore, Russel and Moore show great interest in Husserl’s Logical Investigations and with that Husserl also influences the early analytic tradition. Therefore there is sufficient justification to investigate Husserl and Husserl’s philosophy as pivotal in the development twentieth century philosophy.

Let’s see why. 1. The Study of Socio-Cultural Systems as a Whole 1.1 According to Structural-Functionalism Structural-Functionalism was developed in the early twentieth century and Radcliffe-Brown is considered its founding father. He sought to develop a theory distant from the diachronic description typical of evolutionism, understood as an account of changes in societies in the course of history. In order to do so he promoted a synchronic description “in which the
Emerging late in 1960’s as a new strategy for textual analysis, deconstruction captivated the concentration of critical theories. What is deconstruction? In A Handbook to Literary Research deconstruction is defined as "a form of textual practice derived from the work of the French philosopher Jacques Derrida which aims to demonstrate the inherent instability of both language and meaning" (131). Derrida began formulating his theories on deconstruction by critiquing Ferdinand de Saussure’s Course in General Linguistics. The ideas of Saussure concerning language formed the theories of structuralism from which Derrida borrowed as a key for his deconstruction method.
24-25). Michel Foucault came up with this theory and the method of Critical Discourse Analysis in the late twentieth century. Eileen Hooper-Greenhill applied this theory of discourse of knowledge to the history of the museum (Hooper-Greenhill, 1992). For Hooper-Greenhill, the discourse epoch of modern museums is where its ordering is based on clear classification systems (Hetherington, Foucault and the Museum, 2015, p. 27). She also mentions that a discourse changes through disjunctures that become problematic through established knowledge (Hetherington, 2015, p. 27; Hooper-Greenhill, 2000).

But contemporary conceptions of culture are radically different from the meaning culture used to have when anthropology developed as a discipline within the academy in the nineteenth century. A brief excursion into the shifting meaning of culture over the years may help to clarify contemporary connotations of culture. Many anthropological textbooks open with the definition of culture as a whole way of life of a group or society as it was first formulated by the English
This framing of the effects of learning a language taking strongly from the early 20th-century idea in linguistics called the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis. The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis is the idea that “there’s a link between the shape of language and what people
Keywords: Chomsky, Skinner, Behaviorist’s Theory, Universal Grammar Linguistic Theories in the Classroom Throughout the early 20th century linguists proposed many different theories about how language is acquired. This paper looks at Skinners early behaviorist’s theory where he surmised that language is learned by repartition and reward and that social context plays a crucial part in the learning process. As a comparison, it focuses on Noam Chomsky’s revolutionary theory of Universal Grammar (UG) that argues that language in innate. This paper also attempts to highlight which theory is best suited for teachers who teach learners of English. Literature Review In the late 1950’s, Skinner’s behaviorist theory of language acquisition was fully accepted and linguists agreed that language acquisition came from “external influence” (Kurzweil & Hawkins, 1983).
The term ethnography listed among the categories of qualitative study is a compound word derived from the word ethnos (nation), and grapho (I write), and hence is the study peculiar to the science of ethnology. This discipline of ethnology is a subfield of anthropology, and has its history embedded in the latter. Ethnology compares and analyses the characteristics of different peoples and the relationship between people cultures and social structures (Kollár, 1783). Following Brewer (2000), he describes ethnography as a qualitative study that employs more than one approach for the theoretical framework that fit procedures: questionnaires, interviews, personal documents, experiments, surveys, statistical inference, sampling and new forms of
Huntington’s theory was the first to point that international relations from the twentieth century onwards will be based on the world’s identities and cultures, and the differences between them. Huntington focused on interacting societies, wishing to define themselvesthem in a globalizing world. He understood that “cultural identity is what [is] most meaningful to most people” (Huntington S. P., 2011, p. 20). People and nations try to answer on the question “who are we?”. This answer is most likely to go back to the traditional way by which humans answer, human way answering, by referring to what is most important: ancestry, religion, language, history, values, customs and institutes) Ibid).
