The whole history of anthropology has been based on getting the emic view
of a society--you remember all those introductory courses--or maybe not,
but all
cultures should be viewed from their perspective and not ethnocentrically
the outside. Of course, if an etic perspective is all that's available
we'll take it but it
likely only of limited credibility. Yeah, I think it was a test too.
