...Berger According to Berger, what influences how we see art? In the book Ways of Seeing, Berger demonstrates the relationship between what people see and words. Recognition and seeing come before words. It is by seeing that establishes our places in the surrounding world. Since the world is explained in words, the relationship between what is seen and what is known cannot be settled. Essentially, how we see art is significantly influenced by what people believe or what they know (Berger 19). Although seeing can be considered to a mechanical reaction to stimuli, people only see what they look. Looking is an act of choice. How people see arts can be brought within their reach. Therefore... , the...

This has forced the sociologists to win their attention the hard way. Although this seems unfair to the sociologists, they have taken advantage of other people’s ignorance and stir things so that their job or profession may seem relevant (Peter 12).

...Berger right when he changed his views on secularization in the 1990s?  Secularization has been a topic for great debate amongst scholars in the past decade or so. It is surprising that as much as the debate has been hot on this subject there are still scholar s that have yet to decide what secularization even means. One of the most prominent scholars in this respect is Peter Berger who earlier on in his career vouched for a case against secularization. Peter Berger changed his views on secularization after piling evidence that led to a re-evaluation of his earlier perspective on the subject. I believe that he had the integrity to accept that he was mistaken earlier and he propounded... Was Peter Berger...

Women do this because, as Berger correctly said, women are raised to become “women” according to how the public sees them, specifically, how men want to see them. As a result, many women want to be beautiful because this is what society says should be their primary goal in life- to be attractive so that they can be seen and be rewarded by men’s...
