Culture from the Latin cultural,
stemming from colere "to cultivate,"
is defined as the whole that makes
up every human being on the Earth.
Culture is the sum total of who and
what we are and includes:
arts, language, beliefs and rituals,
rules and laws, habits, as in
historical patterns or customs
shared by a particular society.
Defining Culture has such an enormous
scope that renowned
Kroeber gave 164 definitions for it in 1952.
Global Culture then is
broad and all encompassing
and so unique and complex in
that there should not be
one single opinion on what it is.
This being the case, one in
particular, is very close to being
a nearly perfect overall
definition and should be given merit.
It is the definition given by
Frank Lechner on this page and
should be a starting point in
the study of Global Culture.
