What is Culture ?

  1. 1. What is Culture/// Culture is the system of shared beliefs, values, customs, behaviors, and artifacts that the members of society use to cope with their world and with one another, and that are transmitted from generation to generation through learning. Culture is the traditions and customs that govern behavior and beliefs, transmitted through learning. Culture is the learned patterns of behavior and thought that help a group adapt to it’s surroundings. Culture is Learned. People learn culture from each other. For examples; ``Dogs learn to hate cats, cats learn to hate dog. If the dogs and cats are raise together, they can learn to coexist.`` People are the same in many ways. Many behaviors [culture] are passed on from parents, friends, or employes. They are learned, and can be corrected. Culture is Shared. Culture is an attribute of individuals as members of groups. Culture in anthropology, the patterns of behavior and thinking that people living in social groups learn, create, and share. Culture distinguishes one human groups from others. It also distinguishes humans from other animals. A people’s culture includes their beliefs, rules of behavior, language, rituals, art, technology, styles of dress, ways of producing and cooking food, religion, and political and economic systems. Culture is Symbolic. A symbol is something, verbal or nonverbal, that arbitrarily and by convention stands for something else, with which it has no necessary or natural connection. Symbolic thought is unique to humans and is crucial to cultural learning. Some of its symbols include a group’s skills, knowledge, attitudes, values, and motives. The meanings of the symbols are learned and deliberately perpetuated in a society through its institutions. Symbols are words, getures, pictures, or objects that carry a particular meaning which is only recognized by those who share a particular culture. New symbols easily develop, old ones disappear. Symbols from one particular group are regularly copied by others. This is why symbols represent the outermost layer of a culture. Symbols are the tangible or visual aspects of the practices of a culture. The cultural menaing of the practices is intangible; this is revealed only when the practices are interpreted by the insiders. Examples are concepts such as good and evil, mythical inventions such as gods and underworlds, and social constructs such as promises and football games. Culture is All-Encompassing. Anthropologists take a broad view of culture to include even seemingly trivial things. Culture shapes the way people think, act and react to changes within their society and within their environtments. But, culture also refers to the creative expressions of peoples, [written and oral stories, artwork, craftsmanship, and ideas] the beliefs people hold [religion, morals, laws, tradition, and societal structure] and how they live [adaption to environtment, tools, homes, and foods]. Culture plays a role in all human expression. Culture is Integrated. They are organized around a set of core values – key, basic, or central values. New ideas that don’t fit with these core values are rejected. When a core value changes, a large part of the culture also changes. For example; The USA is culturally integrated with Indonesia, because we have gained knowledge of their technology and implement it in our own country.
