“The Spirit Catches you and you fall Down” by Anne Fadiman
In the book The Spirit Catches you and you fall Down, the author Anne Fadiman introduces the drama that causes a clash of epistemologies. Interpreters may consider the story as an exposition on cultural relativism. The author encapsulates the Hmong culture in the United States of America. The hopes and fears of the refugees of Hmong in Merced are shown in a compelling narrative where Lia is treated for epilepsy at the Merced Community Medical Center by Western doctors.
