This is such a tragic book And I was so torn while reading it mostly for conflicting ideas revolving around the pros and cons of issues such as science and technology as well as cultural relativism If these are topics that interest you then Red Strangers is a must readRed Strangers is a book by Elspeth Huxley cousin in law of Aldous Huxley narrating the conflicts that appear when European colonialists entered Kikuyu territory The book is written from a Kikuyu perspective and the narrative spans 5 generations showing slowly how traditional Kikuyu rituals and customs are giving way to European ones It is amazingly written and immerses the reader right in the middle of the Kikuyu mindset such that when the Europeans arrive in the narrative familiar European customs become almost unrecognizable to the readerAll throughout the book I had little mental battles with myself On the one hand I found it tragic that cultural diversity was being reduced and that traditional practices were slowly being eradicated because of incoming outside influence It was basically the anthropologist s nightmare But on the other hand I also think that this is a natural conseuence of the progress of science and technology And it is simply natural to expect that the group with the better science will ultimately prevail On top of that I guess I do not believe in cultural relativism any I suppose part of me already thinks that there are some cultural aspects that have flaws and must not be embraced simply because they are part of some cultureTake female genital mutilation for example Should we allow it arguing that this practice is deeply ingrained in some African societies and we should embrace cultural diversity and by extension female genital mutilation Or should we abolish it because we know scientifically that it actually is not beneficial for the female Reflecting on it I don t believe there is an absolute truth Truth and its implications are relative and change over time But I do think that if you take time constant and take a snapshot of the state of affairs of the world in one particular time then you would see absolute truth so to speak I do not buy the idea that my truth can be different from yours right now in this moment But I do recognize the possibility that my truth can be replaced with some other superior truth later in a different time After all this is scientific progress If you give me a better hypothesis then by all means I would adopt that hypothesis But don t tell me that your current hypothesis is also valid when my current hypothesis explains the world better than yoursAll of this is at the intellectual level but what I don t want to forget and now mention is the fact that there are tragic conseuences to these scientific and technological advances This book makes me think on how one can advance science and technology and yet still be responsible in doing it When Europeans arrived to Africa they were brash and cruel treating locals as second class citizens sometimes even as slaves All because they had the better science All because their medicines were effective than the goat sacrifices of the Kikuyu All because their guns were powerful than the spears and swords of the Kikuyu warriors But I think one thing lacking here is the respect for human rights This is a tricky song to dance to but as responsible human beings I think it should always factor into all decisions we make It is one thing to advance science but it is another to advance it responsiblyOverall I found this book very moving and raises important uestions that are relevant to us all even now in the 21st century I give it 5 out of 5 stars And I am glad that Richard Dawkins has recommended it to meSee my other book reviews here The Forever War itself forced to obey foreign laws that seem at best bizarre and that at worst entirely contradict the Kikuyu's own ancient ways rituals and belief. This Miss Julia Takes Over Miss Julia #2 is such a tragic book And I was so torn while reading Another Dawn it mostly for conflicting Cracking the Show ideas revolving around the pros and cons of The First Mountain Man issues such as science and technology as well as cultural relativism If these are topics that Home Wrecker interest you then Red Strangers The Source is a must readRed Strangers The Christmas Candle is a book by Elspeth Huxley cousin 奔馬 in law of Aldous Huxley narrating the conflicts that appear when European colonialists entered Kikuyu territory The book The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is written from a Kikuyu perspective and the narrative spans 5 generations showing slowly how traditional Kikuyu rituals and customs are giving way to European ones It The Complete Handbook Of Novel Writing is amazingly written and Cruel Intentions Rydeville High Elite #1 immerses the reader right The Last Juror in the middle of the Kikuyu mindset such that when the Europeans arrive Free Fall in the narrative familiar European customs become almost unrecognizable to the readerAll throughout the book I had little mental battles with myself On the one hand I found Все страхи мира Том 1 it tragic that cultural diversity was being reduced and that traditional practices were slowly being eradicated because of Computer Coding Made Easy incoming outside The Third Man influence It was basically the anthropologist s nightmare But on the other hand I also think that this Snowflakes and Wishes is a natural conseuence of the progress of science and technology And 2010 Odyssey Two it Vampires in the Lemon Grove is simply natural to expect that the group with the better science will ultimately prevail On top of that I guess I do not believe Tales of Pirx the Pilot in cultural relativism any I suppose part of me already thinks that there are some cultural aspects that have flaws and must not be embraced simply because they are part of some cultureTake female genital mutilation for example Should we allow Training His Human Zandian Masters #3 it arguing that this practice How to Build a House is deeply A Bear Named Trouble ingrained Brethren in some African societies and we should embrace cultural diversity and by extension female genital mutilation Or should we abolish Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince it because we know scientifically that The Full Cupboard of Life it actually Royal Escape is not beneficial for the female Reflecting on Here Lies Our Sovereign Lord it I don t believe there Flash Flood Code Red #1 is an absolute truth Truth and Complete Novels The Heart Is a Lonely HunterReflections in a Golden EyeThe Ballad of the Sad CafeThe Member of the WeddingClock Without Hands its The Mother Tongue English and How It Got That Way implications are relative and change over time But I do think that Fir if you take time constant and take a snapshot of the state of affairs of the world Demons of Chitrakut Ramayana #3 in one particular time then you would see absolute truth so to speak I do not buy the Culture and Psyche Psychoanalysis and India idea that my truth can be different from yours right now The Soldier’s Curse Monsarrat #1 in this moment But I do recognize the possibility that my truth can be replaced with some other superior truth later A Tale of Two Kitties A Magical Cats Mystery #9 in a different time After all this City is scientific progress If you give me a better hypothesis then by all means I would adopt that hypothesis But don t tell me that your current hypothesis Fire and Blood is also valid when my current hypothesis explains the world better than yoursAll of this Slam Book Fever Sweet Valley High #48 is at the The Fire Starters intellectual level but what I don t want to forget and now mention The Fire Starters is the fact that there are tragic conseuences to these scientific and technological advances This book makes me think on how one can advance science and technology and yet still be responsible The Kingdom in doing The War of the Ember Guardians of Ga'Hoole #15 it When Europeans arrived to Africa they were brash and cruel treating locals as second class citizens sometimes even as slaves All because they had the better science All because their medicines were effective than the goat sacrifices of the Kikuyu All because their guns were powerful than the spears and swords of the Kikuyu warriors But I think one thing lacking here ヴァンパイア騎士 2 is the respect for human rights This Im Your Girl is a tricky song to dance to but as responsible human beings I think Dark Sparkler it should always factor Roughing It into all decisions we make It A Preacher's Passion is one thing to advance science but No More Good it One Perfect Rose is another to advance Ivanhoe it responsiblyOverall I found this book very moving and raises All The Way important uestions that are relevant to us all even now One Mans Treasure Hell Yeah #16 in the 21st century I give Not Without You it 5 out of 5 stars And I am glad that Richard Dawkins has recommended Journey into Violence The Kerrigans A Texas Dynasty #3 it to meSee my other book reviews here
