Culture is central to civilisations and groups. Through culture we keep a history that the group shares. This can include traditions that old generations pass on to the young ones, or books of knowledge that also last through time. Culture is not something that a baby possesses when he or she is born. It’s knowledge a person acquires. When we say “this person is cultivated”, it generally means that person is knowledgeable. We imply that the person has an ability to think, thanks to that knowledge. Isn’t there a contradiction?
