Conclusion: What is Culture? And the Importance of It

Originating from the Latin word cultura, which means cultivating agriculture, culture is often described as the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people, encompassing language, religion, cuisine, social habit, music, and arts. (Source)

Humans often define themselves through groups they associate with which can affect a person’s self-conception and self-perception.

Culture is largely learned through the influence of other individuals within the community, through family, and even the media or internet. With this, culture can help answer the basic human question “who am I?”.

In recent years especially due to the advent of the internet, more and more people can discover their cultural heritage and identity. For countries that have been colonized, for example, particular groups are painstakingly trying their best to preserve relics from the past for the preservation of culture.

Individuals who migrate to another country much different from their own find themselves joining groups of other individuals from the same country. Together they practice traditions and share meals to continually observe their culture away from their homeland.

Culture brings people together. It affects one’s values and beliefs and helps a person decide how to be.
