WHAT ARE THE
ELEMENTS OF
CULTURE?




The elements of a culture are what make it unique, beautiful and intriguing
to those who know nothing of it.

There are different types of cultures across the world and each culture has
its unique essence. While defining the term 'culture', there are several
elements that together constitute as the culture of a particular region or
the culture of particular people. We fail to understand what the elements
of a culture are, but we can learn more by looking through these:


Language:

The various languages are essentially an important part of the culture.


Norms:

Every society or every civilization has a set of norms, which are an inseparable
part, and an important element of the culture. This can include the folkways,
mores, taboos and rituals in a culture.


Values:

The social values of a particular civilization are also considered as an element
of the culture. The values of a culture often refer to the things to be achieved
or the things, which are considered of great worth or value in a particular
culture.


Religion and Beliefs:

The religion and the beliefs of the people in a civilization play an important role
in shaping up of the culture as well.


Social Collectives:

Social collectives refer to the social groups, organizations, communities, institutions,
classes, and societies, which are considered as symbolic social constructions.


Status and Role in Society:

A status or a social role is nothing but a slot or position within a group or society,
which gives an overall idea of the social structure and hence is an important element
of culture. This can also include traditional gender-based or age-based roles.


Cultural Integration:

This includes the degree of harmony or integration within the various elements of culture.
This can include elements like sub-cultures, local cultures and the difference between
historical and cultural traditions.

ELEMENTS

We describe here about 5 elements of culture below:


Elements of culture


1. Material culture


Technology:

Technology refers to the techniques or methods of making and using things.
It includes the techniques used in the creation of material goods. It is
the technical know-how possessed by the people of a society.



Economics:

Economics is the manner in which people employ their capabilities and reap
the resulting benefits. Included in the subject of economics are the
production of good, and services, their distribution, and means of exchange
and the income derived from the creation of utilities.



2. Social institution

Social institutions including family, educational institutions, political
structure, and the media that affect the ways in which people related to
one another, organize their activities to live in harmony with one another,
teach acceptable behavior to succeeding generations and govern themselves.



Family:

family is one of the most important social institutions. The concept of family
differs from country to country. For example: travel advertising in culturally
divided Canada has pictured a wife alone for the English audience but a man
and wife together for the France segments of the population because the France
are traditionally more closely bound by family ties.



Educational institutions:

They help the process of transmitting skill, ideas, andattitudes as well as
training in particular disciplines.



Political structure:

The political structure may stress single person rule, government by a few or
government through single or multiple party systems.



Media:

Culture has been greatly influenced by the media. In the perspective of our
country newly introduced various private satellite channels have brought
significant changes in our culture.



3. Humans and the Universe:

Religions:

Religion is one of the most sensitive elements of a culture. It is the guiding
force defining human kindís relationship with super natural and in determining
a cultureís values and attitudes. Religion affects peopleís habits, their
outlook on life, the products they buy, the way they buy them, and even the
newspapers they read.



Belief System:

Belief system differs from culture to culture. Too often, one personís beliefs
are another personís funny story. It is a mistake to discount the importance of
myths, beliefs, and superstitions or other cultural beliefs.



4. Aesthetics:

Aesthetics refer to the ideas in a culture concerning beauty and good taste, as
expressed in the arts, music, drama and dance and the appreciation of color and
form.

Aesthetics are of particular interest to the businessmen because of their role in
interpreting the symbolic meanings of various methods of artistic expression, and
standards of beauty in each culture.



5. Language:

The importance of understanding the language of a country cannot be overestimated.
The successful businessmen must achieve expert communication. Which requires a
through understanding of the language as well s the ability to speak it?

Language differs from one culture to another culture.



For example:

Tambo means a roadside shop in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru; a diary firm
in Argentina and Uruguay and a brothel in Chile.
