As your textbook states, much of our knowledge is based on tradition, a handing down of statements, beliefs, and customs from generation to generation (“The groom’s parents should pay for the wedding rehearsal dinner”).

Another common source of knowledge is authority, a socially accepted source of information that includes “experts,” parents, government officials, agencies/organizations, police, judges, and religious leaders (“My mom says that . . .” or “According to the American Heart Association . . .”).

In your post, answering ALL of the following questions:

  • Provide an examples of authorities (people or groups who can provide knowledge based on authority) in your family or society.
  • What do they believe in and/or say?
  • Why might these beliefs be important to society or certain people?
  • Are any of them contradicted by research (or would they be – if so, provide an outside link or source to such a contradiction)
  • Do you believe the authority or the research (why or why not)?

Ideal posts should be between 200 and 300 words and use terms and concepts learned from the chapter.
