Discovering Oneself and Discovering Ourselves with the Help of Literature: Educational Possibilities of Narrative  [PDF]
Alfredo Rodríguez-Sedano, Aurora Bernal Martínez de Soria, Miguel Rumayor
Creative Education (CE) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2010.12015
Abstract: Undoubtedly narrative in education has frequently been studied. Nonetheless, in this paper we want to explore the different educational possibilities offered by narrative in order to discover identity through tradition. MacIntyre’s thought offers the categories of practice, tradition and narrative, in order to penetrate the central questions of personal identity and communicability that we consider the most suggestive. Some authors understand narrative as a very accurate means to access tradition and self-knowledge as well as to show the unity of human life and to vindicate the unity of tradition that we can face and those elements that constitute our moral habitat.
Gender Equity in Education  [PDF]
Elmas Sahin
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.21007
Abstract: Numerous studies show that society often treats boys and girls differently. Although gender inequalities in education have changed much in recent decades thanks to the fight for womens rights, inequity between the sexes continues to flourish nowadays. This article focuses on how and why education is the key to gender equality, and the importance of gender equity in education system in order to create a better environment for girls under traditional pressures. It will also query whether a philosophy of education offering the same opportunities to young women and men, teaching the same things at the same time, in the same place, with the same methods, and under the same system is necessary or not.
Oral tradition and communication
Deepak Aryal
Bodhi: An Interdisciplinary Journal , 2009, DOI: 10.3126/bodhi.v3i1.2813
Abstract: Oral tradition has become a domain of great interest to scholars of different disciplines of knowledge such as literature, psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. It has a huge scope for the discipline of communication too. This article presents an appraisal of oral tradition as a means of communication from one generation to another. While doing so, it deals with following issues: Can history be narrated based on oral traditions just as it is done with ‘written documents'? Are the oral traditions only the sources of historiography or do they have other implications too? It also discusses whether oral traditions can be taken as valid historical sources, and, if not, whether there are means for testing its reliability.

Megalithism and Tribal Ritualism: A Passage through the Kurumbas of Attappadi  [PDF]
Manjula Poyil
Advances in Historical Studies (AHS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ahs.2013.22009
Abstract: The study of mortuary practices of Megalithic communities and its use as the basis for reconstructing the past society is unique in archaeology as it represents the direct and purposeful culmination of conscious behavior of the followers of this cultural trait. There are voluminous studies on the Megalithic builders of South India, including Kerala, written by prominent archaeologists and anthropologists from the early decades of the nineteenth century. Most of them ignored the continuity of Megalithic tradition, except a scant reference to the erection of funeral edifices among tribes like the Kurumbas and Mudugas of Attappadi and Mala-arayans of the Thiruvananthapuram district of Kerala. A study of the living Megalithic practices provides clues to ethnographic parallels, existing belief systems and habitation sites of the present communities. The present study discusses the cultural aspects of the rituals related to living Megalithic tradition among the Attappadi tribes, of the Palakkad district of Kerala. The study of the mortuary practices of the Kurumbas raises two important questions-firstly, how far this tribe can be seen as the actual successor of Megalithic builders of Kerala and, secondly, how does the social differentiation within the Kurumba community got reflected in its mortuary practices, just like the Megalithic builders of the past.
Autoconciencia y voluntad de justificación epocal en la Edad Moderna desde sus orígenes hasta Kant
Vázquez Lobeiras ?,María Jesús ?;
EPISTEME , 2005,
Abstract: abstract closely following considerations by jürgen habermas in the philosophical discourse of modernity (1985) about awareness of modern age as a new era, which saw the fall of tradition or undergoing a deep transformation, the work at hand reconstructs this awareness of newness and transformation as seen in bacon and descartes, and, reviews self-comprehension of modern era in the context of the so-called querelle des anciens et des modernes. finally, aspects of awareness and willingness towards modernity in the works of kant, that represent -according to the habermasian metaphor- the image of modernity in a mirror. kant?s modern era, conceived on as a ?critical era?, reaches its peak, leading to the revision of the entire period from the perspective of the history of reason, as the development of different evolutionary and constituent moments: dogmatism, scepticism and criticism. these moments, if they do provide a somewhat biased image of the discourse of modern thought, have often been used as a key to the historical understanding of that time period. they also serve kant as the definitive justification of the dawn of the critical era
Capital social: premisas, problemas y perspectivas teóricas
EPISTEME , 2006,
Abstract: the theory of social capital is an innovating approach directed to understand the essential aspects of modern democratic systems as the functioning of the institutions responsible of the rules of the game in a society. this theory was initiated by the north american researches, robert d. putnam, who argues that an institution with highly effective performance depends mainly on the civic traditions in the culture that characterizes the society in which it operates, since it is through civic traditions that peoples and institutions develop mechanisms and resources which affect in a determining way the fulfillment of the rules of social games. we are interested in studying the issues concerning putnam?s notion of social capital, analyzing its achievements, scope constraints and difficulties. at the same time, we will suggest some theoretical considerations that could enrich research in this important topic.

Rodríguez T.,Juan Carlos; Miranda B.,Pablo; Mege R.,Pedro;
Estudios atacame?os , 2005, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-10432005000200009
Abstract: this article refers to the long lasting and strong pampa (desertic land) and salitre (nitrate of soda potash) culture imaginary that resists to die, but finds no referent in maria elena, the last salitre town. based on a compensationto the destruction of the community and its identity structure this imaginary traps anthropologists used to the testimonial style. such compensatory phenomenon is caused by both the constant process of renewal and technological efficiency of the xx century, and the incorporation ofactors who do not belong to the community. thus, the pampa/salitre imaginary stays in elements that no longer coexist with the physical, industrial, psychological, social, cultural and political reality of the town and its inhabitants. we propose the existence of crossed-stories that surpass daily life. the trompe l'oeil nature of the imaginary experience indicates that it is now only a pampino concept ofthe stoic fightto preserve a land that no longer exists.based on fragments of memory, the shredded imaginary slowly turns into a simulacrum
