Material culture: the physical evidence of a culture in the objects and architecture they make, or have made. The term tends to be relevant only in archeological studies, but it specifically means all material evidence which can be attributed to culture, past or present. One way our American economy has been stimulated is through the production and innovation of technology. Technology has played a significant role in the overall development of the material culture within the United States. This analysis includes professional references. It is great for use as reference in a Sociology class, or to listen to for leisure to better understand material culture. The author possesses a bachelor's degree of business administration and an associate's degree of management technology.
Here Clinger discusses how our culture is obessed with material objects, and the implications that it has on us as a society as a whole. He not only points out that we a re tied to objects, but that we not only need certain objects, but we are never happy with what we have, and strive to get better objects all the time. I will not tell you his conclusions, that is for you to read.
Scholl compliments Clinger's writing and provides clear pronunication and drives Clinger's point home a sif he wrote the material.
