By describing culture as all-encompassing anthropologists are referring to the fact that culture not only includes but is largely responsible for all human behavior It is my opinion that humans for the most part can be characterized as a sum of their learned behaviors There are however some human behaviors such as eating drinking and reproducing that are often assumed to be instinctual I feel however that they may not be Humans are born with biological needs to eat and drink along with an innate desire for reproduction which is visible in all cultures but the expression of these necessities are widely varied It is my belief that ones culture dictates how a person acts on these instincts by teaching them what is normal and acceptable Cultures force natural or instinctive drives to adapt to suit the well being of a much larger group of people But these three fundamental components of life food drink and reproduction are not the only possible examples that can be used to explain the broadness of meaning behind the idea of culture Culture shapes the way people think act and react to changes within their society and within their environments But culture also refers to the creative expressions of peoples written and oral stories artwork craftsmanship and ideas the beliefs people hold religion morals laws tradition and societal structure and how they live adaptation to environment tools homes and foods Culture plays a role in all human expression
