cultures, with the circumstance. Perfect example is by Levy Strauss, who is a French anthropologist. He shows

us differences between our civilization and othercivilization. It was about the prison and the Outlawed’s

judgment. In our civilization, it is right, when he is sentence to go to prison, whereas in other civilization the
