Psychological Definitions of Culture “Highly variable systems of meanings which are learned and shared by a people or by an identifiable segment of the population. These meanings are transmitted from one generation to another.” Herkovits (1948). “Culture is manifested as shared constraints on behavior of members of a sociocultural group” (Poortinga). “Dynamic system of rules, implicit and explicit, established by groups in order to ensure their survival, involving attitudes, beliefs, norms, values , and behaviors, shared by a group but harbored differently by each specific unit within the group, communicated across generations, but relatively stable across time” (Matsumoto, 1996).
