    each other, more so than he explicitly talks about collapse (24). However, his explanations are still applicable to Diamond’s analysis. Redman explores Western anthropocentrism in regards to nature, and Diamond’s argument is very anthropocentric. For come clear reasons, that makes sense; it is hard to look at a cultural collapse when many species don’t have a social structure as humans define it. Redman also says that the contemporary view of the environment is that is on the brink of collapse, humanity flirting with catastrophic failure. Diamond’s plan is meant to analyze collapse, so it is going to naturally act as if a society is -- or soon will be -- facing social collapse. It isn’t inherently negative; Diamond’s framework is meant to discover the causes of collapse in order to find out how to prevent it. Redman may not agree, implying that by assuming that any society may collapse at any given point does succumb to the negative, catastrophic perceptions that people have about man’s environmental future (30). Diamond’s framework seems to match fairly well with how Mcgovern views the viking collapse. Mcgovern believes that the Vikings failed largely due to a managerial crisis -- when the weather grew colder and they lost regular contact with Iceland, the people turned to their religious and cultural leaders. The leaders did not like the Inuit, so they tried to double-down on their beliefs and practices instead of seeking help from the Inuit. It is likely that all of…

    Boorstin’s Biased “History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.” Winston Churchill. What Churchill means in this statement is if he’s the one writing the history then he can state the cold hard facts, but also he can input his opinion on the matter whether it’s a good one or a bad one. The Discovers by Daniel Boorstin is not your typical history book. In the book, Boorstin strives to answer the why instead of just what or who. After reading to Chapter 33 in The Discoverers, I’ve made a…
