Gerard Saucier on Culture - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 392
Culture/Saucier: when culture is divined as a set of shared patterns, one is prompted to look for the (one) pattern shared by a whole distinct group, relying on the common but unexamined assumption that cultures are homogeneous. But in reality, culture does not regularly correspond to nations, ethnicities or so-called ‘races’. Some individuals are ‘bicultural’, able to operate in two different cultures. One can learn a new culture without necessarily giving up an old one. Nor is culture homogeneous: within any nation one typically finds numerous sub-cultures, which might be organized along what are seen as ethnic or racial lines, or alternatively by language, lifestyle or ideology.
Solution: >psychological anthropology. Cf. >Culture/Schwartz, >Culture/Goodenough.
