  • The word culture has many meanings: In general it refers to a society&apos;s … (at a particular time and place) Ethical Values – most cultures think killing is wrong but in some cultures in Columbia and Brazil certain tribes still practice cannibalism Culture is learned, we are not born with it (but rather into it) Culture changes over time (as we’ll see in a moment) What our parent, grandparents and children think of culture will be different Culture is more often a source of conflict than of unity Understanding culture is the best way to avoid conflict
