What is Culture?

This hypertext page was authored by Eric Maraglia, Richard Law and Peg Collins. It offers a definition of culture as a body of learned behavior. Links provide additional primary sources on the definition of culture with the views of Matthew Arnold, Raymond Williams, Clifford Geertz and John Bodley to represent philosophical and social scientific views of culture.
