' I am interested in contemporary thinking in the world of fashion in how it relates the ASR theory of evolutionary psychology.'
KarlFuler 10:46 30 Sep 2007 Evocative - yes indeed! I didn't mean it to be taken so literally - just the sentiment. Don't be so sensitive!
Yes, I am interested in how instinctive influences urge us to gain status to gain respect, against our selfish interests (as intelligent modern humans). I am interested in people involved in fashion to see how these influences manifest themselves and adapt in a modern context - fashion is such a great subject for this.
I hope that helps
GalileosUniverse 11:07 30 Sep 2007 ....that is a good one ...hahahhahahah...but sensitive ?...with your answer I wonder who is sensitive ..LOL!...just kidding !:):)
...anyhow .....I love to put people's minds to work......yes respect...that is a very tricky word...respect is something you earn...but I'm not quite sure if status has anything with it....I have more respect for a street cleaner than for someone who acquires status by creating...'illusions'...of self importance
Glad to see your senses are working well and I enjoyed your answer...thanks ...LOL!....
GalileosUniverse 13:54 30 Sep 2007 ...following your personal interest...perhaps you should look at these fashion images that have create great controversy in the world of fashion imaginary...perhaps 'status' can be created/ achieved by being...'shocking and sensation seeking'...or by ' purely artistic interest '.....be the judge... I believe in human dignity....as in...respect... without being or wanting to be moralistic...perhaps too complicated to explain and follow in this case :):): but then again I couldn't let it go because of what you wrote about ..'respect'.....after all the artist is involved in.... fashion...:):)...just a thought..... http://www.style.it/cont/vogue/photo/default.asp
KarlFuler 14:26 30 Sep 2007 Thanks for the photos. I can't see why they should have been controversial within the world of fashion as I think they sum up alot of the problems of fashion quite nicely. I'll see if I can find out more about what was said about them.
Yes, I agree, the respect of dignity, empathy & understanding is what we need. However, so much of our culture is based on a respect of admiration and deference. This is what interests me. This is what is so important to examine and to address.
