An Essay On Culture.

Culture is the most unique property a civilisation may ever acquire, it is the portal to a legendary space which is characterized by variety and unicity.

In my personal opinion, culture is a polysemous word.

It can hold many different meanings, that can either be perceived as all incorrect by a narrow-minded individual,

or as all true by an open-minded person who understands the subjectivity of culture.

By the subjectivity of culture, I mean that culture can be perceived differently by each person, community, or nation.

Culture is better understood as a spectrum of ideas and rituals rather than as a single aspect that holds a specific amount of a certain ethnicity's traits.

Believing in the latter promotes unjust stereotypes and discriminatory outlooks on a given society, while believing in the former allows for flexibility in the nature of culture.

Culture, in a general anthropological and historical sense, is a collection of the aspects that set apart communities from one another.

This includes cuisine, historical background, diplomatic relationships, religious beliefs, manners, socioeconomic system, etc...

Cuisine tells us about what a given community consumed throughout centuries of life, which can inform us about its general health and conditions that dominated the people overtime.

Historical background gives us data about achievements of the community, its political and geographic development,

and also its contributions to forming certain global social and economic concepts and ideologies such as classism, Marxism, capitalism, socialism, and others.

Diplomatic relationships tell us about the community's history with other nations and about its international interactions.

Religious beliefs are one of the greatest ways to track a community's intuitive development and to examine its cognitive abilities and how its ideas developed,

they also help us to determine meanings behind the community's artistic heritage and historical monuments.

Examples of antique and primordial religious believes are Greek mythology and Zoroastrianism, these have common points with the more recent Abrahamic religions (most notably Judaism,

Christianity, and Islam) such as the belief in theological dualism and an eschatological perception of life. Manners tell us about the community's human and behavioural natures.

And finally, the community's socioeconomic and politico-economic systems give us a series of data about its beliefs, principles, and theories.

In conclusion, culture is a subjective spectrum that can vary in its dimensions, and it should be thought of as a multitude of aspects than as a single monistic entity.
