Examination and analysis of the notion of culture as it is defined in complex contexts in which power relations, economic and political interests, and ideological practices play a crucial role. Special emphasis is placed on the distinction between ideas and ideologies, the critique of the persistence of myths in modern rationalizations of social practices, and the consideration of the notion of the self as a socially constructed entity. Satisfies the Individual and Society General Education requirement.
