The relationship between culture and human development is an intricate and interesting one. From conception to death, culture shapes our development and understanding, giving us a means for attributing meaning to our environment and human relationships. This course will examine specific cultures from various levels of complexity and from different areas of the world. Specifically, we will be discussing the cultures of The Kung San, Yanomamo tribe, Trobriand Islanders, and the United States.
