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
Anthropologist Alfred Kroeber gave 164 definitions for it in 1952.
Global Culture then is broad and all encompassing
and so unique and complex in its definition,
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:
Globalization Theories, World Culture Theory
The Global pages that will soon be listed here will describe
and define the various categories of Global Culture.
