reply to the discussion board post. Sociology - Topic Culture, minimum 100 words Chapter two was a very interesting chapter to learn about regarding the importance of culture in society. Due to the recent events, I was able to better understand the situation going on with Ukraine and Russia. Previously, I did not have an understanding of what sanctions are. I was widely spoken about on the news by our current president, but I did not have a proper definition of its purpose. In the chapter, I learned that sanctions are rewards for normal behaviors and penalties for abnormal behaviors, negative sanctions would indicate jail. I was also able to understand the definition and difference between ethnocentrism and cultural relativism. I never knew judging a culture had two different methods and backgrounds. Ethnocentrism is when someone judges one culture based on the person judging's culture, whereas cultural relativism is someone judging another culture based on their own standards. It is quite fascinating to see sociology and culture are not black and white, rather it is more detailed and complex. Matthew
