  • is older than culture, for culture, however inadequately defined, always presupposes human society, and animals have not waited for man to teach them their playing. We can safely assert, even, that human civilization has added no essential feature to the general idea of play. Animals play just like men. We have only to watch young dogs to see that all the essentials of human play are present in their merry gambols. They invite one another to play by a certain ceremoniousness of attitude and gesture. They keep to the rule that you shall not bite, or not bite hard, your brother's ear.

  • By being lumped together with theories that superficially resemble it, TSC has mistakenly been criticised for reductionism. For instance, theories that focus on the role of perception for creating and experiencing art tend to do so at the expense of isolating artist, artwork, and viewer from their social, ideological, and historical settings (Dengerink Chaplin 2005). Thereby facts about how the historical context shapes perceptual experience are ignored that are vital for understanding art in symbolic terms, as a social and cultural phenomenon.

In some Western societies, faith in purely irrational belief systems has overtaken belief in reli- gions that have moral and rational substance, as well as cul- tural roots.

  • In many parts of the world, where medicines are not readily available or affordable, the public continue to rely on medicines used traditionally in their cultures. At the same time, affluent consumers in the industrialized world are spending their own money on healthcare approaches that fall outside what has been considered mainstream medicine.
