Exercise 1

Summarise Tyler's definition of culture.


Culture, taken in its wide ethnographic sense is that complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom, and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society. The condition of culture among the various societies of mankind, in so far as it is capable of being investigated on general principles, is a subject apt for the study of laws of human thought and action.

(Sir Edward Burnett Tylor (1871) Primitive Culture. London: J Murray.)
