Characteristics
of Culture
CHARACTERISTICS of
CULTURE
1. Culture is social because it is the
product of behavior.
Culture does not exist in
isolation. It is a product of
society. It develops through
social interaction. No man can
acquire culture without
association with others
11
CHARACTERISTICS of
CULTURE
2. Culture varies from society to
society.
Every society has a culture of
its own that differs from other
societies. The culture of every
society is unique by itself.
Cultures are not uniform.
Cultural elements like customs,
traditions, morals, values, and
beliefs are not constant
12
CHARACTERISTICS of
CULTURE
3. Culture is shared.
Culture is not something that
an individual alone can possess.
Culture, in sociological sense, is
shared. For example, people of a
society share all customs,
traditions, beliefs, ideas, values,
morals, etc.
13
CHARACTERISTICS of
CULTURE
4.Culture is learned.
Culture is not inborn. It is learned.
Unlearned behavior then, is not
culture. Shaking hands, saying
thanks, etc. are cultural behaviors.
Not all behaviors are learned, but
most of these can be. Combing hair,
standing in line, telling jokes,
criticizing the president, and going
to movies all constitute behaviors
that need to be learned.
14
CHARACTERISTICS of
CULTURE
5. Culture is transmitted among
members of society.
Cultural ways are learned by people
from others. Many of these ways are
handed down from elders, parents,
teachers, and others (most likely
individuals of older generation), while
other cultural behaviors are handed up
to elders. Transmission of culture is
made possible by language. Language is
the main vehicle of culture.
Transmission of culture may take place
also through imitation as well as
through instruction..
15
CHARACTERISTICS of
CULTURE
6. Culture is continuous and
cumulative.
Culture exists as a continuous
process. In its historical growth, it
tends to become cumulative. Ralph
Linton called culture “the social
heritage” of man. No culture ever
remains constant or permanent. It is
subject to slow but constant
variation. Likewise, culture is
responsive to the changing
conditions of the physical world;
hence, it is dynamic.
16
CHARACTERISTICS of
CULTURE
7. Culture is gratifying and
idealistic.
Culture provides proper
opportunities for the satisfaction of
our needs and desires. Our needs,
both biological and social, are
fulfilled in cultural ways. Culture
consists of the intellectual, artistic,
and social ideals, and institutions
where members of the society
profess and strive to confirm.
