 Face (social custom) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 [No title]
Face is a multi-faceted term, and its meaning is inextricably linked with culture and other terms such as honor and its opposite, humiliation.
If one commits a social blunder as an adult, in most cases, there is no group shame involved, only personal embarrassment, and (one hopes) a desire to correct the wrong with a sincere apology.
In light of all this, the place that face issues hold in low-context cultures is not nearly as important as in collectivistic societies.

 Indian Hemp Drugs Commission Report - Social and Religious Customs
The custom of offering an infusion of the leaves of the hemp plant to every guest and member of the family on the Bijoya Dasami, or last day of the Durga Puja, is common in Bengal, and may almost be said to be universal.
The custom described above, and which refers solely to bhang as distinguished from other preparations of the hemp plant, is he most important occasion on which bhang is used as a part of social or religious ceremonies; but there is evidence to show that the drug in this form is used at other festivals.
But, so far as the evidence shows, the use on those occasions is a matter of social custom observed more generally in some parts of the province than in others, and, although nodoubt there may be some who consider it essential to their devotions, partaking but little of the nature of general religious observance.

 Modern History Sourcebook: Rauschenbusch: The Social Gospel, 1908
Wherever husbands by social custom regard their wives as inferior, there is a deep-seated defect in married life.
Socialism is coming to be the very life-breath of the intelligent working-class, but if all the members of all the social and literary clubs of a city were examined on socialism, probably two-thirds would fail to pass.
Unless a judge is affected by the new social spirit, he is likely to be at least unconsciously on the side of those who have, and this is equivalent to a special privilege granted them by the courts.

Following this step, the skin is carefully elevated from the lower face and neck region and the muscles of the face and neck are tightened to produce a natural, long-lasting effect (deep plane face lift).
Older face lift techniques did not involve this critical step of addressing the lax muscle and the results were not as natural or long-lasting.
Face lift incisions are carefully placed within the natural creases in front, within, and behind the ear.

 20th WCP: John Dewey's Critique of Socioeconomic Individualism
One of the obstructions in the path is the seemingly engrained notion that the first and last problem which must be solved is the relation of the individual and the social:—or that the outstanding question is to determine the relative merits of individualism and collective or of some compromise between them.
One reason for the comparative sterility of discussion of social matters is because so much intellectual energy has gone into the suppositious problem of the relations of individualism and collectivism at large, wholesale, and because the image of [their] antithesis infects so many specific questions.
Unable to understand let alone overcome the giant social complex which had helped to produce their socioeconomic bonds, average workers were thus atomized and individuated, that is, separated off from coworkers, bosses, and society at large—ideologically so, at least.

 Social Phobia: Least Understood Anxiety Disorder
Social anxiety is the fear of social situations and the interaction with other people that can automatically bring on feelings of self-consciousness, judgment, evaluation, and criticism.
Social anxiety disorder (social phobia) is a much more common problem than past estimates have led us to believe.
A specific social phobia would be the fear of speaking in front of groups, whereas generalized social anxiety indicates that the person is anxious, nervous, and uncomfortable in almost all (or the majority of) social situations.

 Losing Their Cool: The Downside of Expanding Hot Social Networking Sites - Knowledge@Wharton
The same social networking tools that are popular today on the Internet may also find a place within the corporate intranet as companies seek better ways to encourage knowledge sharing and spur innovation.
While social networking sites wrestle with the expansion dilemma, Bell argues that the marketing problem these firms face is similar to the issues faced by other companies trying to segment a market.
While social networking sites have their own dynamics, there are lessons to be learned from the marketing practices of large companies in other industries, which often face the challenge of whether to become "a house of brands or a branded house," says Bell.

 Religion And Tradition
The difference between a religious practice and a social custom is rather a new concept.
With the social changes on the one hand and the elaborations on the other, the gap between the practical social life and the complicated, often mute, religious practices widen.
The smaller a community and the older the customs, the more the emphasis on turning the "endangered" community into a closed-door "reservation" in order to help the faithful to preserve and practice their traditional rites.

 Newfolk NDiF: Face Value (Page 2)
The price that is paid for getting in someone's face is often violence, because the social face that exists outside the rules of the games is a more stable and sacred construct than the impermanent, secular mien that is often at stake within games.
Face behavior takes on a defensive quality when the individual appears to be excessively concerned with protecting his face -relative to the objective requirements of the situation in his cultural context.
Ultimately, face in African American culture serves as a buffer to such breakdowns which have historically threatened the harmony and the existence of the community.

 Tezeta: Social Structure of the Ethiopian Church   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
These social conflicts are not necessarily due to the industrial revolution - which is barely making an appearance in Ethiopia - or to any form of mass emancipation, as in the West in the last century.
To attempt to estimate how the Ethiopian Church is actually facing the shock and what it is doing and achieving in the realm of social reform is a broad task with which only a social scientist who has devoted all his energies to the investigation of these issues would be qualified to deal.
The basic social unit of Ethiopian society is not the individual but the family, which forms a homogeneous community with its own characteristics.

 John Dewey: Human Nature and Conduct: Part I section IV Custom and Habit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The problem f of social psychology is not how either individual or collective mind forms social groups and customs, but how different customs, established interacting arrangements, form and nurture different minds.
The regime of custom assumes that the outcome is the same whether an individual understands what he is about or whether he goes through certain motions while mouthing the words of others repetition of formulae lacing esteemed of greater importance, upon the whole, than repetition of deeds.
If progress in spite of this fact is more rapid than in other social forms, it is by accident, since the diversity of models conflict with one another and thus give individuality a chance in the resulting chaos of opinions.

Lockhart said that Clinton had offered a plan to extend the solvency of the Social Security Trust Fund by setting aside more than 60 percent of the federal budget surplus and said it was up to Republicans to counter with their own plan.
Clinton's plan proposes setting aside most of the Social Security surplus to keep the system solvent when the baby boom generation begins retiring in a few years.

 Competition and Custom in Economic Contracts: A Case Study of Illinois Agriculture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Marshall seems to have been of this view, asserting that the sway of custom is a feature of "primitive times and backward countries," and that the "English" system of straight land rent contributed to its superior position in agriculture (Marshall, 1920, Chapter X).
These regional customs are roughly related to average differences in economic fundamentals, but they mask the considerable amount of heterogeneity that exists within each region.
It will typically have higher potential than a global custom, because it allows landlords to capture more rent at relatively little loss in social utility, provided that the boundaries between the regions are not too long (i.e., there are relatively few farms near the boundaries).

 "No Such Custom": An Exposition of I Corinthians 11:2-16   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The modern custom of heavily veiling the face in the Middle East and North Africa is due to a great extent to Islamic influence.
Paul is not saying, "we do not have any custom"; rather, he is saying, "we do not have a custom like this one I have been discussing." "Such" does not mean "any"; it refers to something previously discussed.
Thus when he says, "we do not have such a custom," the custom to which he is referring is the one that he has discussed with disapproval—the custom which the one who wants to be contentious is trying to introduce.

 Honor
Once a culture of honor exists, it is difficult for its members to make the transition to a culture of law; this requires that people become willing to back down and refuse to immediately retaliate, and from the viewpoint of the culture of honor this is a weak and unwise act.
