What we have learned?
- Humans are weird:
- You can divorce what we do with science when we are doing cultural activities
there is an inherit loopingness to this
- The egies of siee are igorae ad failure. Eaple: The lass ritig
their essays the first time versus writing the essay the third time
- The things that make science bad are things like fraud, fabricating data, doing
science dishonestly (Diederik Stapel)
- What does it mean when we talk about human nature is joint responsibility:
what we cultivate and create: The same piece of knowledge can be construed in
a number of different ways. We ourselves create what it means to be human
through our time
- Cooking as a constructed niche: Cooking is apart of a scaffolding mind (it changes
our gut, it changes our brains, etc.)
- Evolution and health: agate hunter-gathers, the basic reason evolutionary
approach can be valuable because evolutionary does not care about us, but we
care about what is good for us. When the hunter-gathers began to settle down
and become agriculture there is a lot of costs (diseases, etc.). But it also had a
oost i fertilit ad total suriig offsprig’s led to a adaptie situation.
Evolutionary does not care about us! Look more broadly at Public Health
concerns in our lives
- Attachment cross-cultural patterns: attachment theory worked in a particular
time and place.
- Harlow and his work on monkeys and how you can understand that better and
prove that love is a thing and the kinds of treatment that kids are receiving in
hospitals ad hoes are reeiig is’t good for the. You eed attahet i
order to survive and that supported Bowlby attachment theory. Sarah Hrd’s
ideas that expands on what Harlow says you need more then on attachment
figure you need a village to raise a child
- Cultural Influences on birth: timing of birth, kinds of learning you learn in the
womb, kinds of ways in which the human body incorporates kinds of organisms
into ourselves. Human and bacterial cultures help make us what we are. If you
do’t look closely enough you will miss these cultural or biological influences
- Obstetric Dilemma: evolutionary problem the tradeoff to be able to walk
properly created this problem of giving birth to offspring for women. Obstetric
dilemma is not a fixed thing it varies through time and space. Public health and
certain diseases like Rickards and that leads to structural birth not the way the
pelvis is shaped
- Being your self: looping effect what we say we actually will hear and we can
reflect on what was said. Reflective product of living in a human, social, cultural
life. Example of conjoined twins to understand socially creative selves. Coming to
turns with having two people sharing one-body forces us to recognize how we
understand selves. This is a problem cause we think of our selves and being
