  • Video #7 takes up social systems and how we can analyse human behaviour successfully – although it is difficult

  • Video #8 is about societies and how they are like labyrinths in which we can find our way by using our capitals wisely – and promote ourselves with symbols and rituals

  • Video #10 shows examples of how strong masculinity can be a quite unfortunate influence in communication
