THE GLOBAL CULTURE COLLECTIVE™
A project built from an empirical methodology based on research procured by social scientist Xiomara A. Sosa. It is designed to explore global cultures and to educate people about cultural topics that contribute to valuing global culture. This initiative identifies and highlights diverse cultures from around the world in hopes of promoting respect and acceptance of all people. Culture from the Latin cultural, stemming from colere "to cultivate,"is defined as the whole that makes up every human being on the Earth. Culture is the sum total of who and what we are and includes: arts, language, beliefs and rituals, rules and laws, habits, as in historical patterns or customs shared by a particular society. Defining Culture has such an enormous scope that renowned Anthropologist Alfred Kroeber gave 164 definitions for it in 1952. Global Culture then is broad and all encompassing and so unique and complex in its definition, that there should not be one single opinion on what it is. This being the case, one in particular, is very close to being a nearly perfect overall definition and should be given merit. It is the definition given by Frank Lechner and should be a starting point in the study of Global Culture.
