When you say culture, what does it mean?
When you use the word culture, does it imply that the way you think, feel or dress is the way that is accepted in society or are you merely asserting what you think?
A recent study by the Harvard-Harris poll found that when asked to define culture, the majority of Americans say they define it by something like “cultural” rather than “national.”
So why does it seem to be so prevalent that when people say they are cultural relativists, it is almost always when they are really not?
What is culture?
Culture is an important concept for understanding the cultural divide in the United States, especially when it comes to how we relate to one another.
To put it simply, the word means “something of which a person is deeply attached.”
So the word “culture” doesn’t just mean that something is shared by all people.
It also refers to how those who hold cultural beliefs view and use those beliefs, especially those that are perceived as harmful.
So, for example, if a person says that he or she does not like the way a certain song or movie is played, the person might also say that he/she does not consider it “cultural.”
In the case of race, the meaning of the word is often tied to how it is perceived.
It is understood that white people like to think of themselves as “white” and therefore should view their own race as “the white race.”
That might mean that whites should view themselves as being “American,” but they should not think of their own ethnicity as “race.”
The same goes for class.
It’s understood that some people have a higher income because of their skin color, but it is understood, for instance, that some of the lower-income people don’t have that privilege.
So what these differences in definitions of “culture,” and how they are interpreted by different groups of people, means is that when you think of “cultural,” you might be using it as a description of something you think you know about yourself.
But when you talk about cultural “norms,” it might mean something entirely different.
So when you say “culture is about something,” you’re basically saying that there is some sort of cultural norm for some things that you find very attractive or are socially acceptable.
And when you use “norm,” that usually means that some culture or social norms are part of a set of universal norms.
In other words, some culture, in its current form, does not allow women to drive or that certain foods, such as meat, should be eaten.
The meaning of “norm” can be used to refer to a range of different cultural norms, such that a certain food or some food is not considered acceptable for certain people.
But the word has also been used to describe things that are not universally accepted.
For example, in some cultures, it might be considered rude to speak to a foreigner because of a particular cultural norm.
This could be seen as a way to protect one’s own culture.
The word “norm.”
A word like “normed” is sometimes used to mean that some cultural values or social customs are considered acceptable, but not all of them.
In the current study, people were asked to identify a number of cultural norms and found that people who identified as “norm-minded” were less likely to say they agreed with a statement such as “all cultures are equal.”
But when the word was used to reference a set in which there were many cultural norms that were acceptable to everyone, people who defined themselves as norm-minded were less inclined to say that.
So while a culture that is “normally” not acceptable to some might still be acceptable to others, it would likely be viewed as a threat to the social order, a threat that would be used by some to justify the social divisions in the first place.
What are the implications of using the word culturally?
When we use the term “culture.”
Is it referring to a set, or a collective cultural norm?
Is it something that is imposed by someone or something that you do or think?
Or is it something you have come to expect and which is accepted by everyone, regardless of your personal beliefs?
In other word, is it just another word for “cultural?”
Is it just something that’s there in the dictionary, or does it actually mean something in the cultural context?
The word also has a broader meaning when used in a social context.
For instance, when we talk about “political correctness,” we might say that it is the tendency to enforce social norms that we think are wrong.
But it can also be used in the context of something like the idea of cultural “equality.”
Is that something you find acceptable or unacceptable?
And if it is, what would that mean for society as a whole?
For example: If you’re in a group of people who believe in “gender equity,” it could be that you believe that people should be allowed to pursue their own interests without being discriminated against,
