#1. Unlike multiculturalism, cultural pluralism doesn't just mean diversity but also togetherness - primarily the understanding of the rules of the game - the European values structure. - Author: Bassam Tibi
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Bassam Tibi
#2. And he [Louis Brandeis] talks to his young acolyte, Horace Kallen, who wrote this beautiful book called Cultural Pluralism, and he comes to believe that by being better Jews, or better members of our ethnic group, we can be better Americans, because America is like an orchestra in which identity is defined by the diversity of perspectives that we bring to the table. - Author: Jeffrey Rosen
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Jeffrey Rosen
#3. It's unfortunate that [Louis] Brandeis was not able to translate or abstract his devotion to cultural pluralism and racial equality as he put it for Jews to enslave people and their descendants and to African Americans. - Author: Jeffrey Rosen
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Jeffrey Rosen
#4. When every ethnic and religious group claims a right to approve or veto anything that is taught in public schools, cultural pluralism becomes ethnocentrism. An evident casualty is the old idea that whatever our ethnic base, we are all Americans together. - Author: Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.
#5. I'm a conservative but not because I care very much about the marginal tax rates of the richest Americans, rather I'm a market-oriented localist because I believe in cultural pluralism and I believe in the First Amendment, in voluntarism over compulsion whenever possible, and in as much de-centralized decision-making as is conceivably feasible. - Author: Ben Sasse
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Ben Sasse
#6. When I returned home soon afterwards, it was with a newly awakened sense of what Australian literature was good for: helping us define ourselves in relation to an Anglo past and American present, for example, or airing the wounds suffered by indigenous Australia, or inhabiting those new frictions that result from our expanding cultural pluralism. Above all, it could teach us to dwell more easily in a landscape that did not accord with the metaphors and myth-kitty that was our northern inheritance. - Author: George Williamson
Cultural Pluralism quotes by George Williamson
#7. In America, the materio-economic conditions relate to a societal, multi-group existence in a way never before know in world history. American Negro nationalism can never create its own values, find its revolutionary significance, define its political and economic goals, until Negro intellectuals take up the cudgels against the cultural imperialism practiced in all of its manifold ramifications on the Negro within American culture. But this kind of revolution would have to be predicated on the recognition that the cultural and artistic originality of the American nation is founded, historically, on the ingredients of a black aesthetic and artistic base. - Author: Harold Cruse
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Harold Cruse
#8. For [Louis] Brandeis, you know, ethnicity and background are much less important than facts and reason. And he believes that far from wanting to efface our diversity of perspectives, we have to embrace it because that makes us more American, not less. In that sense, he's incredibly modern in an age of cultural pluralism. And it is disappointing for just the reasons you say that not everyone has embraced his pluralistic vision. - Author: Jeffrey Rosen
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Jeffrey Rosen
#9. We have to allow ourselves the freedom to make mistakes, including cultural mistakes, in our first drafts. I believe it's okay to get cultural details wrong in your first draft. It's okay if stereotypes emerge. It just means that your experience is limited, that you're human. - Author: Gene Luen Yang
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Gene Luen Yang
#10. In TV, film, and music there's a lot of snobbery, and I don't like it. I've never been a cultural snob. - Author: Simon Cowell
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Simon Cowell
#11. As an American man of the 1990s writing about a Japanese woman of the 1930s, I needed to cross three cultural divides - man to woman, American to Japanese, and present to past. - Author: Arthur Golden
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Arthur Golden
#12. Science is intimately integrated with the whole social structure and cultural tradition. They mutually support one other-only in certain types of society can science flourish, and conversely without a continuous and healthy development and application of science such a society cannot function properly. - Author: Talcott Parsons
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Talcott Parsons
#13. I think that young people are going to continue on with the work on pluralism for two reasons, really. One is because it's the reality of the world that they live in, and I think young people from different backgrounds are asking themselves, what does it mean for me to be a Buddhist and friends with a Baptist? - Author: Eboo Patel
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Eboo Patel
#14. I have enormous pride in the survival of the Jewish people, the cultural heritage of the Jewish people, but I'm not observant, and I don't belong to a synagogue. I don't go to temple on high holy days, but I'm proud to be Jewish. - Author: Erica Jong
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Erica Jong
#15. The elite, and those who work for them, were never taught how to question the assumptions of their age. The socially important knowledge and cultural ideas embodied in history, literature, philosophy, and religion, which are at their core subversive and threatening to authority, have been banished from public discourse. - Author: Chris Hedges
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Chris Hedges
#16. To love is to willingly lower our defenses, a terrifying prospect any time and place but especially so at a time and in a place where we perceive ourselves as having so much (HIV; violence; social; cultural; environmental degradation) to defend ourselves against. To love is to give oneself to another, to entrust to someone else a power that all good sense would have us reserve to ourselves. So we give away some part of ourselves, to find that part returned to us tenfold, in ways we could never have predicted and cannot rationally understand. Loaves and fishes. Miracles happen. - Author: Fenton Johnson
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Fenton Johnson
#17. We're born into a certain family, nation, class. But if we have no connection whatsoever with the worlds beyond the one we take for granted, then we too run the risk of drying up inside. Our imagination might shrink; our hearts might dwindle, and our humanness might wither if we stay for too long inside our cultural cocoons. Our friends, neighbours, colleagues, family - if all the people in our inner circle resemble us, it means we are surrounded with our mirror image. - Author: Elif Safak
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Elif Safak
#18. There's always the tendency to transform the Church into an ethical agency, and of measuring the Church by the yardstick of social and cultural utility. - Author: Karl Lehmann
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Karl Lehmann
#19. The arts have long been an integral and vibrant part of our nation's cultural heritage. In its many forms, art enables us to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our society. Providing us with a unique way to learn about people of other cultures, it allows us to discover all that we have in common. At its best, art can beautify our cities, encourage economic development and social change, and profoundly affect the ways we live our lives. - Author: William J. Clinton
Cultural Pluralism quotes by William J. Clinton
#20. I think globalization actually maintains and fosters various elements of national and cultural identities. I don't think everything is being homogenized. If anything, your food, your culture, and your ethnicity might become part of the globalized world, and thus absorbed by other countries. - Author: Nouriel Roubini
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Nouriel Roubini
#21. The immediate future of man lies in the imagination and in seeking the dimension where the imagination can be expressed. The present cultural crisis on the surface of the planet is caused by the fact that this is not a fitting theater for the exercise of imagination. It wrecks the planet. The planet has its own Eco-systemic dynamics, which are not the dynamics of imagination. - Author: Terence McKenna
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Terence McKenna
#22. The Bible Belt is collapsing. The world of nominal, cultural Christianity that took the American dream and added Jesus to it in order to say, 'you can have everything you ever wanted and Heaven too,' is soon to be gone. Good riddance. - Author: Russell D. Moore
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Russell D. Moore
#23. Art needs motives that are more profound than profit if it is to maintain its difference from - and position above - other cultural forms. - Author: Sarah Thornton
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Sarah Thornton
#24. This is not the place to anticipate the discussion, but two things may usefully be said. First, all but the most sanguine pluralists admit that there are immense dangers ahead and that signs of cultural decay abound. - Author: D. A. Carson
Cultural Pluralism quotes by D. A. Carson
#25. Hollywood and Disneyland are the legacy of Europe's cultural imperialism. We gave them nursery rhymes and they gave back film. Televised riots are as American as Barbie/ Big Macs. Tomorrow the riots will be forgotten but Mickey mouse will still be there. Welcome to Disneyland. - Author: Richey Edwards
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Richey Edwards
#26. The birth and growth of modern antisemitism has been accompanied by and interconnected with Jewish assimilation, the secularization and withering away of the old religious and spiritual values of Judaism. What actually happened was that great parts of the Jewish people were at the same time threatened by physical extinction from without and dissolution from within. In this situation, Jews concerned with the survival of their people would, in a curious and desperate misinterpretation, hit on the consoling idea that antisemitism, after all, might be an excellent means for keeping the people together so that the assumption of external antisemitism would even imply an external guarantee of Jewish existence. This superstition, a secularized travesty of the idea of eternity inherent in a faith in chosenness and a Messianic hope, has been strengthened through the fact that for many centuries the Jews experienced the Christian brand of hostility which was indeed a powerful agent of preservation, spiritually as well as politically. The Jews mistook modern anti-Christian antisemitism for the old religious Jew-hatred - and this all the more innocently because their assimilation had by-passed Christianity in its religious and cultural aspect. Confronted with an obvious symptom of the decline of Christianity, they could therefore imagine in all ignorance that this was some revival of the so-called "Dark Ages." Ignorance or misunderstanding of their own past were partly responsible for the - Author: Hannah Arendt
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Hannah Arendt
#27. Appearance over substance was a cultural theme in China - Author: Paul Midler
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Paul Midler
#28. Once you have a certain amount of money, it ceases to be an issue. I'd rather put my cultural imprint on the fabric of life. After money, all you want is immortality. - Author: Shane Smith
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Shane Smith
#29. There's a fine line between cultural criticism and bitterness. - Author: Marc Maron
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Marc Maron
#30. efforts and character of institutions like these can grow into a way of life when the people involved in them put them at the center of their cultural existence and identity and, as it were, fall into orbit around their rich moral core. - Author: Yuval Levin
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Yuval Levin
#31. Storytelling is an essential part of our cultural and human identity...when we become afraid of stories outside the mainstream, I believe we have lost a valuable part of our cultural inheritance and growth. - Author: Louise Sommer
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Louise Sommer
#32. It has become a cultural norm in Jewish families for parents to bring up their children to value wealth. - Author: H.W. Charles
Cultural Pluralism quotes by H.W. Charles
#33. Of course, all during my childhood, would-be saviors tried to rescue my fellow tribal members. They wanted to rescue me. But, even then, I could only laugh at their platitudes. In those days, the cultural conservatives thought that KISS and Black Sabbath were going to impede my moral development. They wanted to protect me from sex when I had already been raped. They wanted to protect me from evil though a future serial killer had already abused me. They wanted me to profess my love for God without considering that I was the child and grandchild of men and women who'd been sexually and physically abused by generations of clergy. - Author: Sherman Alexie
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Sherman Alexie
#34. However, the new Istanbul would not be a closed off society built on strict religious grounds. Influence from Middle Eastern kingdoms during that time did not spell cultural collapse, but usually the opposite, as historically the old Islamic empires were known for preservation of antiquities and a push toward topics like science, mathematics, and education. Although initially Constantinople was a ransacked, broken city, it would gradually turn into a new cultural center, where even former enemies (Christians) were allowed to re-enter and live among Muslims (although they were taxed for their faith). - Author: Ayaz Babacan
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Ayaz Babacan
#35. I think of magazines as cultural entities rather than boxes of corn flakes that can be sold and shipped around. - Author: Wayne Grady
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Wayne Grady
#36. Enacting same-sex civil marriage would therefore not be an expansion of the institution of marriage, but a redefinition. Finishing what policies like "no-fault" divorce began, and thus entrenching them, it would finally replace the conjugal view with the revisionist view, elevating the latter to the dignity of legal principle. In so doing, it would multiply the marriage revolution's moral and cultural spoils, and make them harder than ever to recover. Or so we shall argue. - Author: Sherif Girgis
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Sherif Girgis
#37. My litmus test of compatibility is 'Tom Cruise.' I hate people who hate Tom Cruise, cultural automatons who at the mention of his name reflexively bridle and say the diminutive thespian and Theta level Scientoligist is 'crazy' and 'a terrible actor'. They hate him because he's easy to hate. They think that despising Tom Cruise's lack of personality and supposed lack of talent is somehow a blow against the bland American Anschluss of the rest of the planet. Tom Cruise may indeed be the Christopher Columbus of the twentieth century, sent off by the kings of Hollywood to prove the new world of International Box Office isn't flat and to find a direct route into the Asian market, but the decline of everything isn't his fault; he's just a cinematic explorer and a damn fine actor. And hating him doesn't make you seditious- it makes you complicit. - Author: Paul Beatty
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Paul Beatty
#38. The problem facing humanity today is not a political problem; it's not a financial problem; it's not a military problem. It's obviously a spiritual problem. That is, it has to do with what we believe to be true about who we are, where we are, why we are where we are, and what are we doing on the Earth. What is the purpose of life itself? What we need right now are leaders or models, people who will stand up and not only help to write a cultural story, but help to model it in the way that they interact with each other. - Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#39. So, drenched and downing champagne, I danced a rather demented waltz-cum-jig with a young bride I'd never met before in a place I'd never been before at 4.30 in the morning. And you know the weirdest thing of all? It all seemed so perfectly natural. - Author: Colin Irwin
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Colin Irwin
#40. The international manager reconciles cultural dilemmas - Author: Fons Trompenaars
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Fons Trompenaars
#41. A decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today. The Western world has lost its civic courage ... Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling and intellectual elite, causing an impression of a loss of courage by the entire society. - Author: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Cultural Pluralism quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
