Sociology and anthropology for one ARE like twins. they both seek to find the social and cultural forces that inflence human behavior. sociologists who are more interested in social relations and structures like race, ethnicity, social class, gender, etc., anthropologist are also concerned with the physical and cultural development of human beings from the time of their origin to this day.

uh, no. Anthro has biological components that sociology rarely uses. There are different fields in Anthro just like there is for EVERY major

Sociology is the systematic study of society

Then, explain that.

that is the issue when you do not use biological components like genetics, it limits your studies specially in the study of epidemiology
anonymous

like i said sociology "RARELY" uses biology
abb0t
  • abb0t
Then, can you explain why theres a field called sociobiology?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i agree that biology is needed in sociology. Sociology is highly flawed because they think everything is a social construct. This is very DUMB of people who hold PhD's to think this way. Race is not only a social construct but it is also very much genetic/biological.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Also sociology is flawed in that they only consider the black and white paradigm in race and ethnicity studies. Very closedminded.

I am not concerned with who started or coined what, but when it comes to rigorous scientific methods, Malinowski established it in the field of Anthropology, which sociology later on adopted along the works of Franz Boaz and people that followed him like Claude Lévi-Strauss.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So what? that's just methodology. EVERYBODY uses it.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
we can discuss about Comte for all that matters, but his field work was not sound
nincompoop

methodology is important in science
anonymous

agreed but so what? EVERYBODY in the social sciences uses it
anonymous

that doesn't prove that sociology is a "baby version of anthro"

not to the same extent and rigor before Malinowski

ah Du Bois is appropriately more described as an anthropologist than a sociologist, but splitting hair does not do service to his work because both field refer to him in the same manner.

You can not entirely dismiss someone based on a few flukes of his or her works.

and im pretty sure du bois admired Nazi Germany
nincompoop

ethnicity and nationality have a very weak divide between the two, but in view of sociology and anthropology, this becomes highly subjective based on circumstances.

he visited Nazi Germany and had nothing but good things to say about them

What is epistemic privilege?

human activity every human activity is in the scope of anthropology
nincompoop

are we really going to discuss epistemic privilege?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Why? does it hurt your reality nin?
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
I just refer to it as stratification
anonymous
  • anonymous
It deals with social stratification
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
there is no point in using fancy words such as epistemic when people do not even know what that word means
anonymous

and the positive things that come from being at the bottom that the people who come from privileged community will NEVER have nor understand vicariously
nincompoop

ya I just put it under stratification which is already a sub study

Vera it's like street smarts and also the knowledge and insights in life that minorities have in a dominant oppressive society
nincompoop

there are few things to consider when studying sociology or anthropology, the role of power is one of them
Zale101
  • Zale101
Anthropology studies many things about humans than sociology. Anthropology studies the human culture, biology, archeology and primate ancestors! As for sociology, our behavior is judged by our society, culture, development, structure, interactions and not our evolutionary or biological. That concludes that sociology is limited. epistemic privilege epistemic is related to knowledge Privilege is a synonym for advantage This means that epistemic privilege means the advantage of studying knowledge.

nin how much does cultural anthro cover individualism and collectivsm

Yep sociology is VERY limited

When it comes to race studies anthro is superior but when it comes to the study of society and social behavior soc is superior
anonymous
  • anonymous
A lot of anthro majors, especially white students, are scared to go into the bioogical aspects of race because they're afraid of being labeled a racist
anonymous
  • anonymous
which is a problem for anybody OUTSIDE the black and white paradigm.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
When it comes to anthropology, the view of individualism and collectivism are not viewed as if they are a separate entities. We can see this in the study of Psychology which studies the individual, but also do not say anything that environmental factors such as his or her social surrounding have no impact or influence in development from physical, mental as well as personalities.
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
they're not completely separate and CAN be interrelated but they are nevertheless 2 different categories
anonymous
  • anonymous
also, this is CULTURAL anthro
anonymous
  • anonymous
fukin love cultural anthro
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
Both are examined on equal footing, this is why human genetics and primatology is a subject far away from what you study, because to study humans (anthropology), one must not limit to humans.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so do u agree that race is not purely a social construct
anonymous
  • anonymous
youre a anthro major of course you do
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
it is a social construction no one was disagreeing with that in any department of physical science and social science maybe you will find it in some crazy philosophy or religious studies that give privilege to one tribe or group of peoples (you know who they are).

no it's not only a social construction

Anyways he wrote several books and he's very well known in the anthro community and he even wrote that race was a social construction HOWEVER upon sending him a very detailed email about the biological and genetic differences in East Asians, he agreed with me and he even provided more examples of ethnic groups that have different biological characteristics. He agreed it had to do with white guilt and that in many ways race studies are constrained.
anonymous
  • anonymous
r we done here?
anonymous
  • anonymous
actually, nin which specific ethnic groups do you know with unique biological differences?
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
Okay that may be a misconception and you're probably using it out of context. Here's what the relative frequency of physical characteristics and genetical characteristics say (phenotype and genotype). There are more differences among similar groups (what you call race) and fewer in different groups. And there the similarities among humans far outweighs the differences. Biology nor Genetics put no emphasis whether race exists or not or it is a biological factor or social factor. Diversity provides species (applicable to all) a higher chance of survival, particularly when we are talking about multicellular like humans.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
we can discuss how certain phenotypes and genotypes maybe be more prominent for others, but you must be comfortable with evolutionary biology, because we can briefly (joking) cover it.
vera_ewing
  • vera_ewing
@yomamabf
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
we can discuss pre-zygotic and post-zygotic barriers and then move on to what makes certain characteristics "appear" or "disappear" for that matter. Just give me the word.
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's incorrect
anonymous
  • anonymous
Dr. Relethford even wrote what you wrote in his books but he corrected himself. The myth that there are more differences within groups than between groups is a misconception. It has to do with proximity. Dr. Relethford said Koreans and Chinese will have more similarities than with Korean and Italians.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Phenotype is not the only biological characteristic that's different. Dude, that's so basic.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
I mentioned genotype
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
relethford is not used in any of my text nor in my biology and genetics studies

East Asians and especially Koreans have the LEAST amount of apocrine glands in the world which means they produce the least amount of body odor. This is also related to ear wax type. People of Asian descent especially of East Asian descent have DRY earwax whereas Western people such as Europeans or Africans have WET earwax. Africans also have the most amount of apocrine glands in the world which means they produce the most body odor. This isn't a bad thing because it's adaptation to your environment and has certain benefits to that environment. Europeans also have a lot of apocrine glands.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Native Americans who have migrated from East Asia also have the dry earwax trait.
anonymous
  • anonymous
If you go to Korea, you will NOT find deodorant because they don't need it. People who have body odor is looked at as someone with an illness because it's not common.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
so how is that a proof of existence that RACE in the context of social studies is a biological factor ? When you are only pointing out differences in differentiation of cells.
anonymous
  • anonymous
What do you mean? Those are different biological traits.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Cells? okay that's getting down to the nitty gritty that's NOT even used in academia. Disappointed in you for that. Anyways, those are biological traits that are different that PROVE race is not purely a social construct.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
just as there are different characteristics for viruses and bacterias even within the same grouping, that does not say anything about race if we use the same logic into humans as well as other species within the scope of primates.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
it isn't ??
anonymous

Also, BONE MARROW. You can only donate your bone marrow to your ethnic group or else their body will REJECT IT. This is why people who are bi-racial have an extremely hard time finding donors. You can only donate your bone marrow to people in your specific ethnic group.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
glands are what now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I just proved that race is not purely a social construct and you're not even being relevant anymore.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
that is true, in the case of bone marrow, same with blood or anything that you put into your own body that isn't yours there is a relative frequency in rejection and that is based on your immunological response.

You got proven wrong big whoop. Who cares learn from it and move on.

okay you're jut using a whole bunch of mumbo jumbo to compensate for the fact that you lost

dude race is not purely a social construct i provided example and i have more end of story WOMP

you mean to say that differences is a race matter? because you can be a different race than your mother if that were the case.
anonymous

Humans are not all the same i find it HILARIOUS when sociologists say "oh but theres only little genetic variations between race and ethnic groups that it's not significant!" LMAOOOOOO fukin idiots we're also 99% similar with CHIMPS and PIGS and even RATS. It's those small genetic variations then really COUNT.
nincompoop

this is why I wanted to know if you feel comfortable with evolution because I really want to use pre-zygotic and post-zygotic and then move on to what you called "environmental" factors
