EDST 391: H. sapiens: What does it mean to be “human”?
- Buss, Chapter 12: Status, Prestige, and Social
Dominance (ONLY pages 361-376, 382-388)
- Briefly describe two aspects of our modern culture: (a)
one that you
personally find really positive (like, admire, enjoy) and (b) one that you
find really negative (dislike, troubling, destructive). Be prepared
why. You may refer specifically to American culture, but as an example of
human culture more broadly.
- This assignment is designed to help you start outlining Paper 3
(topic = what aspects of human culture that might be creating
evolutionary pressures on us?)
