If we look at chapter 2, we see that it is about “Understanding and Studying Culture.”


Looks like a great place to start building the conceptual framework for cultural anthropology, as “culture” is the most central concept in cultural anthropology and given that cultural anthropology is about “Diversity of learned and shared thought and behavior (culture) in the present.”

On page 20, Eller defines culture as “Culture then can be understood as those ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving, and the social and material products of those ways, which are shared among a group of people not on the basis innate or physical traits but rather on the basis of common experience and mutual learning.”
