Different Ways of Looking at Culture
       


Culture can be understood as:
  • Civilization
  • World-View
  • Symbolic Interaction
  • Stabilizing mechanism
  • Information Processing Mechanisms

Approaches for Understanding Cultural Adaptation:
  • Monoculturalism
  • Multiculturalism
  • Salad Bowl/Cultural Mosaic
  • Leading Culture Conditioned Assimilation
Scientists use the term "culture" to refer to the capacity to classify, codify and communicate experiences symbolically. Primatologists such as Jane Goodall have shown that primates also show aspects of culture. Thus culture is not unique to humans.
Different human societies have different cultures. The culture of one individual can also be unique.
