D. Definition of Culture

Culture (from the Latin culture stemming from colere, meaning “to cultivate”) is a term that has various meanings. For example, in 1952, Alfred Kroeber and Clyde Kktcknohn compiled a list of 164 definitions of “culture” in Culture: A Critical Review of Concepts and Definitions. However, the word “culture” is most commonly used in three basic senses:

1. Excellence of taste in the fine arts and humanities, also known as

high culture

2. An integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior

that depends upon the capacity for symbolic thought and social


3. The set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes an institution, organization or group Culture is a term used by social scientists for a people’s whole way of life, In everyday conversation the word ‘culture’ may refer to activities in such fields as art, literature, and music- But to social scientists, a people’s culture consists of all the ideas, objects, and ways of doing things created by the group. Culture includes arts, beliefs, customs, inventions, language, technology and traditions. The term ‘civilization1 is similar, but it refers mostly to scientifically more advanced ways of life. A culture is any way of life, simple or complex.

Culture consists of learned ways of acting, feeling and thinking, rather than biologically determined ways, The British anthropologist Sir Edward Burnett Tylor defined culture as “mat complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society,” Tylor’s definition includes three of the most important characteristics of culture: (1) Culture is acquired by people. (2) A person acquires culture as a member of society. (3) Culture is a complex whole.

Culture is acquired by people because it consists of learned patterns of behavior rather than the biologically determined ones that are sometimes called instinctive. Culture is a complex whole that social scientists can break down into simple units called ‘cultural traits.’ A trait may be a custom, such as burial of the dead; a device, such as a plow; a gesture, such as a handshake; or and idea, such as democracy.

What are basic elements of all cultures? All cultures have features that result from basic needs shared by all people. Every culture has methods of obtaining food and shelter. Every culture has ways to protect itself against invaders. It also has family relationships including forms of marriage and systems of kinship. A culture has religious beliefs and a set of practices to express them. All societies have forms of artistic expression such as carving, painting and music. In addition, all cultures have some type of scientific knowledge. This knowledge may be folklore about the plants people eat and the animals they hunt, or it may be a highly developed science.
