Universality vs Cultural relativism
« on: August 31, 2009, 04:04:51 PM »
Are there some things about the human condition that are universal to all people, or perhaps even if not strictly universal to all people, are best held to be universal?




What are your thoughts?

Word. Birth and death and truly universal to the human-condition.

How about needs?

Food and shelter.

Come to think of it, that applies to everything living.

Conflict has been a part of the human condition form the beginning if I'm not mistaken.

We all want to reproduce (Not necessarily now but everybody wants to reproduce at one point in there life).

We all want life to be easier: we're building machines to do the simplest shit.

We want to feel better then other people (whoever says they don't just prove my point...)

We All Lie

And those characteristics have made the human species successful
