Human Diet And Nutrition In Biocultural Perspective

Past Meets Present

Author: Tina Moffat,Tracy Prowse

There are not many areas that are more rooted in both the biological and social-cultural aspects of humankind than diet and nutrition. Throughout human history nutrition has been shaped by political, economic, and cultural forces, and in turn, access to food and nutrition has altered the course and direction of human societies. Using a biocultural approach, the contributors to this volume investigate the ways in which food is both an essential resource fundamental to human health and an expression of human culture and society. The chapters deal with aspects of diet and human nutrition through space and time and span prehistoric, historic, and contemporary societies spread over various geographical regions, including Europe, North America, Africa, and Asia to highlight how biology and culture are inextricably linked.

Everyone Eats

Understanding Food and Culture

Florence Nightingale (1820-1920) is famous as the heroine of the Crimean War and later as a campaigner for health care founded on a clean environment and good nursing. Though best known for her pioneering demonstration that disease rather than wounds killed most soldiers, she was also heavily allied to social reform movements and to feminist protest against the enforced idleness of middle-class women. This original edition provides bold new insights into Nightingale's beliefs and a new picture of the relationship between feminism and religion. Suggestions for Thought to the Searchers after Truth Among the Artisans of England (1860), which contains the novel Cassandra, is a central text in 19th-century history of feminist thought and is published here for the first time. Nightingale argues that work was the means by which every individual sought self-fulfillment and served God. She wrote influentially about the group most Victorians declared to be above work: unmarried, middle-class women.

This long awaited second edition focuses on the social and biocultural uses of food in ancient and contemporary societies throughout the world.

Als die Wörter tanzen lernten

Ursprung und Gegenwart von Sprache

Author: Wolfgang Steinig

Publisher: Spektrum Akademischer Verlag


Category: Communication and culture

Page: 456

View: 5358

Wie und warum entstand Sprache? Warum wurden WArter und Grammatik notwendig? Hat sich "der Aufwand gelohnt"? Welche Anpassungsvorteile brachte Sprache mit sich? In welcher Weise bedingen Sprache und Kulturevolution einander? Findet man in heutigen Sprachen Spuren, die auf ihren Ursprung schlieAen lassen? Warum scheitern wir im Alltag so oft an unseren Formulierungen? Warum hAren und sagen wir nicht das, was eigentlich gemeint war? - So viele Fragen, die sich jedem, der A1/4ber Sprache und Sprechen nachdenkt, stellen kAnnten, die aber bislang noch nicht befriedigend in einem schlA1/4ssigen Denkrahmen beantwortet wurden. Wolfgang Steinig macht sich daran, diesen und zahlreichen weiteren Fragen auf den Grund zu gehen und mit einer neuen Theorie zu beantworten - keiner grauen Theorie, sondern einer Sicht auf Sprache, die mit zahlreichen Beispielen aus dem heutigen Sprachleben illustriert ist. Seine facettenreiche - linguistisch-anthropologisch-biologisch-psychologische - Darstellung schlAgt einen weiten Bogen: von den anatomischen, soziobiologischen und Akologischen UrsprA1/4ngen von Sprache A1/4ber die Entwicklung der Schrift bis hin zu aktuellen pAdagogisch-didaktischen Aspekten wie Rechtschreibreform, Mehrsprachigkeit, Fremdsprachenerwerb und Medienkompetenz. Ein zentrales Element des mit Witz und Eleganz geschriebenen Buches ist die Anwendung des a žHandicap-Prinzipsa oe auf die menschliche Sprache. Diese Spur fA1/4hrt den Autor zu einer verblA1/4ffenden Annahme: Die Entwicklung des Tanzens in der frA1/4hen Menschheitsgeschichte hAngt unmittelbar mit der Evolution von Grammatik zusammen - die WArter mussten gewissermaAen das Tanzen lernen, um ihren Siegeszug als einzigartiges und hAchst variables Kommunikationsmittel anzutreten.
