12th Class Chapter No 2 - Culture, identity and socialisation in Social for IGCSE

In sociology, it is essential to understand the social context in which human behaviour takes place – and this involves understanding the culture in which social action occurs. Culture is a very broad concept which encompasses the norms, values, customs, traditions, habits, skills, knowledge, beliefs and the whole way of life of a group of people. To give two specific, and classic definitions of the term culture: Ralph Linton (1945) defined the culture of a society as 'the way of life of its members: the collection of ideas and habits which they learn, share and transmit from generation to generation'. Clyde Kluckhohn (1951) described culture as a 'design for living' held by the members of a particular society.
