Facets of Culture

Facets of Culture

A society  is an organized group of individuals who share functional relations (Fleury, 2002). The complexity of present-day societies is increasing the roles for an individual, and at the same time diversifying the ways these roles can be interpreted.

These roles are determined by culture. Each society defines its own norms and the ways in which they are realized. It can therefore be said that culture is a structure that gives form to behavior and fixes the framework of exchanges between the people of this group.

The function of culture is integration, adaptation, communication and expression. Societies are organized politically into nations, but within this national unity, subcultures may exist with specific cultural characteristics. These groups use the society in which they are embedded as their framework of reference, and share their nationality, language and institutions, while being delineated byt heir socio-economic, historic and geographic characteristics.
