    For me culture is an evolving thing. People define what culture is.

    Culture is what seperates us form our animalistic roots. In around 80,000 bc the climate softened, allowing our predecessors time free from there fight for survival, allowing them to develop language etc. From there to now culture was the means by which our attitude to the world has developed (be it positively or negatively

    Hah! That's funny!

    But seriously, I think culture is a living thing and ever changing. The activities of human beings, the language they speak, the way they react to certain behaviours, their history and even geography can shape "culture".

    We can see culture in movies, music, literature, lifestyle, art, theater and film and things like that.

    Chess is a culture for example! There is certain language and certain behaviours around chess...

    Please add your definition like: Language is culture

    or history is culture etc...

    Culture is a word used in many different contexts. Its meaning depends upon how it used within each context. We are all grappling for meaning in the world, and culture is too abstract to spend time trying to find a precise definition

    I am not looking precise deifinition. Just ideas like:

    For me culture is talking

    For me culture is people. etc...There is no exact definiton. My task is to gather as many ideas as possible to create this cultural survey..

    I just need to know what people think when they first hear the word culture.

    That's all.,
