Culture Clubs Series
Dr. Minsos wrote Culture Clubs: The Art of Living Together and its prequel Weird Tit-for-Tat: The Game of Our Lives to challenge with an unusual (Weird) tit-for-tat trichotomy the conventional tit-for-tat dichotomy. Culture clubs with their manners' codes are the way any given group hierarchy (socialization) arranges itself. Minsos completes the culture-club series with her newly released book, Culture Clubs: The Real Fate of Societies.
S. Minsos’ theory of socialization contributes significantly to our understanding of the way domination sparks the manners of individuals, and how teams naturally coalesce around a common purpose – and the common purpose depends on variable contexts and affordances.
Do our contemporary affordances, such as climate change, immigration, AI, secularity, and the growing power of the feminine, impact, pro and con, the manners of today's various culture clubs? Of course.
Moreover, the youth (way more than the adult) is the most gifted and powerful and culturally agile mover of change.
Dr. Janine Brodie CM FRSC Critical Concepts: An Introduction to Politics
"Culture Clubs is informed by the great debates of human nature, contemporary game theory, and creative literature and film. Minsos’ careful analysis of socialization makes a compelling case with abundant intuition and delightful wit."
Claudia Petersmeyer PhD
"If you have spent any time wondering about human nature and our need to form and belong to groups, this book is for you. Minsos offers a new twist on group dynamics, ranging from the smallest unit of the family to the local community and outward, incorporating the larger multicultural world. Dr. Minsos is confident, feisty, and has a sharp wit as she offers a well substantiated perspective on our game playing."
Peter Midgley, Counting Teeth:
A Namibian Story
"Socialization and culture, Minsos argues, are not binary, but depend upon a three-cornered asymmetrical (weird) matrix tit-for-tat game in which the struggle for authority becomes a key part of how all societies function. In making her case, Minsos engages readers and theorists in a series of Socratic dialogues."
