Is it culture or an uncivilized society?
Culture is the way of life of a particular society or group of people, including patterns of thought, beliefs, behavior, customs, traditions, rituals, dress, and language, as well as art, music, and literature. (Webster’s New World Encyclopedia, 1992)Civilization on the other hand is a state of human society that is very developed and organized. It could also mean a society, its culture and its way of life during a particular period of time in a particular part of the world. A civilized society is one that is well organized socially with a very developed culture and way of life.
