Why are we who we are? Or more importantly, why are we human? Why does humanity act, think, work, live the way that it does? This question can be difficult to answer, yet the majority of people agree that the answer to this question lies within the idea of the human condition. The human condition is a philosophical idea, which revolves around figuring out what makes humans human.
So far it could be inferred that truth is ubiquitous, fundamental and essential to crystallize human knowledge of the world, in this way that one thinks and understands the world based on one’s combination of dialects, interactions, and experiences through the world. Behind every claim and belief lies many other beliefs; It is the work of understanding to expose and consequently affirm or negate them. These ‘other beliefs’ are what Gadamer calls Prejudice; they are the very source of our knowledge and consequently the very source of our doubts. Prejudice along with individual interests, questions, and problems constitute an individual’s Tradition. Critics have questioned Gadamer for what they thought was a conservative approach toward tradition that blindly and readily would accept a tradition without criticizing it.
As Butler affirms “ The epistemological capacity to apprehend a life is partially dependent on that life being produced according to norms that qualify it as a life or , indeed, as a part of life. In this way, the normative production of ontology thus produces the epistemological problem of apprehending a life, and this in turn gives rise to the ethical problem of what is to acknowledge” (Butler, 2009:3). Butler sees the framing as an epistemological problem that is related to power structures. “The frames through which we apprehend or, indeed, fail to apprehend the lives of others as lost or injured (lose-able or injurable) are politically saturated. They are themselves operations of power” (Butler 2009:1).
Whether people think of it consciously or not, they have an answer to these questions to some extent. The question “Who am I?” addresses the purpose of humans and how they came to be. Similarly, the question of “Where am I?” addresses the nature of this world and humanity’s relationship with it. The question “What is wrong?” addresses the fact that there are things in this world that are not right, whether it is something that prevents people from having fulfillment or a form of evil. Closely associated with this is the question “What is the remedy?” which is salvation or way to overcome the evil.
The Human Identity Who conscious As Creation and Justice Mission Different science is different also understood of identity. From the perspective of philosophy considers that human identity is about the substance (creatures a rational and is able to find the experience and be able to avoid contradictions and vagueness) emphasizing the human ego and selfhood. From the sociological perspective to understand that human identity is being aware of who they are to others and who the other person for himself. From the perspective of the cultural to understand that human identity is being a cultured. Looking at the various background are so very complex, have exposed the author to an idea of the identity of human creations, becomes a answer relevant
The social object identified as human, does not have existence or significance without language, which represents a means of interaction and understanding amongst individuals. The more complicated human affairs and sensations are, the more transcend the linguistic form used to express them. Literature is the epitome of language; as it is the language in its most enhanced form to express the concerns and concepts of man in the most premium styles. Hence, literature is a tool to express oppression and resistance, as humanitarian issues. Regardless the unreasonable factors that lead to the presence of oppression among the human race members, oppression occurrence is intensely bracketed with resistance; as a result.
History refers to the speculation and efforts in getting truths, clarification of the cause of the origin of things, and information of how and why events happen. History aims to help us understand past humans’ interactions and how the dynamic environment impacted their interactions. It is important to note that history is not just the presentation of information about the things that happened in the past as some people claim. History is an important aspect of human life. It allows the human race to appreciate what happened in the past and what is going on in the present.
Gaining knowledge is necessary for personal development and growth and the way knowledge is acquired strongly depends on the area the information is about. To be able to analyse which ways of knowing are used to obtain knowledge, we must first define one or more knowledge questions each area of knowledge is dealing with. Each of these questions can be answered with the use of ways of knowing, which make up the knowledge network for the area of knowledge as a whole. When only considering the differences between the natural sciences and the ethics with no deeper investigation, the disparity in the subjectivity of the area is clearly noticeable. While the knowledge concerning natural sciences is mainly shared, due to school syllabi or publishing
It also determines the objects of every social science by ascertaining their differentiating characteristics, and fixed their relations and common principles, the beginnings of their development and their special methods". In a much prescribed way, (Schwedt, 2001) concur that Epistemology is “the study of the nature of mankind, knowledge and justification.” The study of epistemological assumptions is also implicit in specific methods. It assumed that methodology includes unique ways of observing and analyzing phenomena that specifies how a method “captures” the “object” of study (Tuchman, 1978). In a similar fashion, (Moser, 2002) confirm that epistemology is more than just a study; rather, it is the theory of knowledge that gives advance qualitative research
Structuralist criticism: Structuralism is a philosophical approach to the meaning of structures of the human cultural system. It has been using in different ways in all sciences and the anthropology. They tried to attempt the way of how human form and shape their intellectual system to describe the meaning and significant result of it. For Barton, the structuralism is not historical but it is logical, and the reason why the study of the Bible through the structuralism has two reasons. The first reason is, "disappointment and disillusionment with the traditional historical-critical method" (pg.
