Welcome to the Culture blog page.

Have you had a good journey on our Blog till now? 🙂

The word culture refers to the knowledge and characteristics of a specific group of people that make it distinguishable to the others. Should we enlist the elements composing it we would say that Culture encompasses music and arts, religion, language, social habits, cuisine and so on. In a certain way, we can get a step forward by saying that Culture is also a series of patterns of behaviours and interactions cognitive constructs and understanding that are learned by socialization, as the Advance Research on Language Acquisition tells us.

Here you have a couple of definitions from the literature:

For Kroeber, A.L., & Kluckhohn, C. (1952). Culture: A critical review of concepts and definitions. Harvard University Peabody Museum of American Archeology and Ethnology Papers 47.

” Culture consists of patterns, explicit and implicit, of and for behavior acquired and transmitted by symbols, constituting the distinctive achievements of human groups, including their embodiments in artifacts; the essential core of culture consists of traditional (i.e. historically derived and selected) ideas and especially their attached values; culture systems may, on the one hand, be considered as products of action, and on the other as conditioning elements of further action.”

Whereas for Hofstede, G. (1984). National cultures and corporate cultures. In L.A. Samovar & R.E. Porter (Eds.), Communication Between Cultures. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth.

“Culture is the collective programming of the mind which distinguishes the members of one category of people from another.” (p. 51).

 

Do not worry!

We are not trying to lecture and bother you. 🙂

Our idea is simply to offer you some bits of culture from all over the world through funny pages full of interesting content from cuisine (typical internationally famous dishes and recipes), music (traditional songs), arts, social habits and so on.
