Rituals
Worldview
-an encompassing picture of reality based on a set of
shared assumptions about how the world works
-worldivews establish symbolic frameworks that
highlight certain significant domains of social
experience wile downplaying others
(spirituality, in a seculuar worldview we dont pay so
much attention to ghosts, while in other cultures ghosts
are real)
-multiple worldviews may coexist in a single culture, or
a single worldview may dominate
(creation and evolutionism in north America)
Thinking about worldview: humans and weather
Bima: rain is a gift from all-powerful Allah
Dou Donggo: rain is part of the natural orer of things,
which can be disrupted by mischevious spirits
North America: the weather channel
Language Culture and Reality
We are what we speak
- Sapir-Whorf hypothesis: there is a systematic
relationship between the categories of the language a
person speaks and how that person understands the
world and behaves in it
-in other words, different languages patterns
yield different patterns of thoughts
-language shapes our world view
-reality is not just reflected or described by
language, but shapes what reality IS for us
-learning a language is about more than a
vocabulary; so, too, is culture
-is cross cultural translation even possible?
Adamic – language = differ words, same
labels of things
Metaphors we live by (lakoff and Johnson)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
