Lesson Seven: Superstructure

Reading Summary

In this lesson we explore where morality comes from, how we make meaning, and how our tastes, likes, and dislikes are shaped by our culture, our position in society, and our aspirations for the future.  Key concepts covered include social capital, cultural capital, and distinction.  We then look at the religions of the world to see what functions they serve and what kind of wisdom they might offer to people trying to navigate and make sense of the world.
