Culture refers to the shared beliefs, practices, customs, and values that define a group of people or a society. It encompasses a wide array of elements, including language, religion, cuisine, social behaviors, art, music, and traditions. Culture is both tangible, in the form of artifacts and architecture, and intangible, manifesting in norms and ideologies. It serves as a collective lens through which individuals interpret and interact with the world, providing them with a sense of identity and belonging. Culture is dynamic, shaped by historical events, geographic conditions, and social evolution; it is also influential, affecting how societies structure their laws, conduct their relationships, and envision their futures.

Understanding culture is crucial for fields ranging from anthropology and history to business and international relations, as it plays a pivotal role in shaping individual behavior and societal structures.
