Without culture and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future. - Albert Camus

What Is Culture?


Culture is a learned pattern of behavior, a way in which a person lives his life. It is an integral part of every society, and creates a feeling of belonging and togetherness among the people of that society. Every society has a different culture, which gives it an identity and uniqueness.

Manifestation of Culture:
Lloyd Kwas's model of culture and his "Man from Mars" technique help us get a better understanding of culture through the different levels or layers through which culture is manifested. In this technique, we try to imagine things from the perspective of a Martian (or an alien) who has landed onto our planet and is observing a group of people in an enclosure.
