Posted by khuram on December 29, 2008
Not only humans, many animals also live in “societies”.
Term CULTURE should be specific to only human societies. Culture is the “material” and “immaterial” LOOKS of any human society.
Housing arrangements, types of buildings, roads and streets, means of communication, means of production of goods and services, level of technology, type of dressing, types of foods etc. etc. constitute the MATERIAL CULTURE of human societies.
On the other hand; language, idologies, beliefs, religion, customs, traditions, music, art etc. constitute IMMATERIAL CULTURE of human society.
Civilization means level of political and social organization of human society, level of ethical and moral standards of individuals of society; integrity, honesty and manners of individuals of that society etc.
