Question:Please tell us about a time recently that you gave a gift to someone. In your answer, please be sure to include an explanation as to why you gave a gift to that person as well as what the gift was and why you gave that particular gift. Please also tell us what you think would have happened if you had given that person cash instead of the gift you gave (and if you gave cash rather than something else, flip this question and tell us what would have happened if you’d given a gift instead of cash).

Respond to classmates that do not already have a lot of responses
Answer the following in your response: Connect your classmates’ answer to what you have learned about Max Weber’s view that sociologists need to try to understand the meanings people give to their behavior. In doing so, please answer the following: What meaning(s) did your classmate give to their action of gift-giving? How does this meaning of giving a gift (or even a gift card) compare to the meaning of giving cash-money (instead of a gift)? Do you think your classmate’s view of gift-giving aligns with our society’s more general views of giving gifts? How would a symbolic interactionist explain these phenomena? In your answer, be sure to incorporate specifics from your classmate’s answer and details from the assigned Introduction chapter and/or Videos about Theoretical Perspectives, Part 2.
