“Culture” can seem like a fuzzy concept, but it’s definition does help pin to unpack it.
“Culture is the total way of life of particular groups of people. It includes everything that a group of people thinks, says, does and makes — its systems, attitudes and feelings. Culture is learned and transmitted from generation to generation.”
