A basic definition of culture: Those ideas, values, set of rules and norms shared among a group of people and transferred from one generation to another, and that the next generation try to pass on, somewhat changed, though. (A.M.Klausen)

“Believing with Max Weber that man is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spun, I take culture to be those webs and the analysis of it to be therefore not an experimental science in search of law but an interpretive one in search of meaning,” Clifford Geertz wrote in his 1973 book, “The Interpretation of Cultures” (Basic Books).
