Samenvatting

Samenvatting
This innovative textbook explores a variety of every facets of culture, both in past and present. How is it possible to study 'culture' when the topic covers the arts, literature, film, history, sociology, anthropology and gender studies? Culture examines the evolution of a concept with varying meanings depending on changing norms. Offering the first long-duration analysis of the relationship between culture and nature, this book looks at the origins of culture from an international perspective. Using examples from the several scholarly traditions in the practice of studying culture, the book is a key introduction to the area. It identifies the history of interpreting culture as a meeting point between the long-standing historical investigation of 'humanism' and 'postmodernism' and is a comprehensive resource for those who wish to further their engagement with culture as both a historical and contemporary phenomenon. Keywords: history of mentality, psychoanalysis, Marxism, linguistic structuralism, gender studies, agency, Zeitgeist, discourse, memory-studies
