Reading Notes05/Sapiens



Almost of us believe in imagined orders such as Christianity,democracy,capitalism, comsuerism…

In my view, what the author provided so-called imagined orders is similar as 'culture' which is inter-subjective.Almost of us are influenced by cultural environment. The author came up with an interesting example:a wealthy man in ancient Egypt would never have dreamt of solving a relationship crisis by taking his wife on holiday on Babylon.Instead,he might have built for her the sumptuous tomb she always wanted.In contrast, most people living in capital societies today believe in the myths of romantic consumerism.
