The Liquid Personality and Adiaphora Discussion, Cross-cultural psychology: Critical thinking and contemporary applications. (6th ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Pearson Education, Inc.
2. For this assignment you will respond to questions based on information discussed in Exercise 11.2 on page 342 of the textbook (You must have the newest edition of the textbook for this chapter). This is an individual only discussion post, therefore there is no small group discussion or summary response for this assignment. The small group discussions were assigned in Week 8.
a. There is a popular view in social science that, in the 21st century, many people find themselves in “liquid times,” where men and women increasingly live without any solid bonds: that is why the term “liquid” is used, suggested by the famous Polish-born thinker, Zygmunt Bauman (Bauman, 2006). He describes how people have moved away from a “solid” culture with established norms, customs, roles, and values to different type of modern “liquid” life. People today have little consistent self-definition because they define themselves in such a variety of ways nationally, sexually and so on. Having no permanent bods, more people associate themselves in whatever way they can manage, in order to engage with others. As a result of these changes, adiaphora has emerged–a permanent attitude of indifference and moral numbness. In a contemporary word of fast food and shallow relationships, where attention is riveted on personal electronic devices when we rarely have time to settle on any issues of importance, people of a liquid culture are becoming increasingly selfish, losing their sensitivity to the plight of others (Bauman & Donskis, 2013).
