Talcott Parsons on Culture - Dictionary of Arguments

Habermas IV 211
Culture/Talcott/Parsons/Habermas: in Durkheim's tradition, social theory is based on a concept of the lifeworld shortened to the aspect of social integration.
Habermas IV 212
Culture and personality are merely presented as functional supplements to the "social community": culture provides society with values that can be institutionalized; and the socialized individuals contribute motivations that are appropriate to the standardized expectations of behavior. (MeadVsDurkheim, HabermasVsDurkheim).
Against this:
Mead/Habermas: in the tradition based on Mead, social theory is based on a concept of the lifeworld that is shortened to the aspect of the socialization of individuals. Representatives of symbolic interactionism are: H. Blumer, A.M. Rose, A. Strauss or R. H. Turner.
Habermas IV 354
Culture/Parsons/Habermas: (See also Cultural Values/Parsons). In the later Parsons, culture is understood as a subsystem, that follows own
Habermas IV 355
imperatives of conservation, which itself manages with scarce resources and that other subsystems "penetrate" only in the sense that systems that form environments for one another overlap in peripheral zones and can interlink with one another. This methodological revision also means a break with what Parsons called "analytical realism".
Habermas IV 426
Culture/Evolution/Parsons/Habermas: Parsons regards cultural development as an equivalent for changes in the genetic code (>Analogies).
Selection/Parsons: for Parsons, the social implementation of the potential included in world views corresponds to selection from the field of cultural variants.
