Culture and Sociology

Simply post, i would like to tell you about culture’s friend which is sociology. This purpose of post is to make clear understanding of culture itself. Culture is one of the most important and basic concepts of sociology. In sociology culture has a specific meaning. The anthropologists believe that the behaviour which is meant is called culture. In other words the behavior which is transmitted to us by some one is called culture.The way of living, eating, wearing, singing, dancing and talking are all parts of a culture. In common parlance, the word culture, is understood to mean beautiful, refined or interesting.

In sociology we use the word culture to denote acquired behavior which are shared by and transmitted among the members of the society. In other words, culture is a system of learned behaviour shared by and transmitted among the members of a group.So culture is also a part of sociology and sociology is also part of culture.



“FINE” country


Can you figure out what has been called by “fine” city ? yes, it is┬áSingapore. Everything seems fine, fine situation, facilities, and everything seems so much fine. This is one of fascination that they create as a dream country. Even it is small country that we are all know that this country has nothing actually, but they made those all beauty spot to be visited. Singapore is not a “cheap” country, as Indonesian, their currency is higher than ours but then, it seems so worthy to pay for. You may spent almost 500 dollars only for 2 or 3 days (of course included shopping). One of the thing that i want to tell is i am in love with this country. Not with all the shopping center or all great food but i love the atmosphere of safety. I can go anywhere by bus or MRT without feeling apprehensive. And another is their discipline rules. Everything is fine means when you do something wrong, you are going to be fine with paying FINE which is the penalty. They created the rule but with the soft ways in order to create the real understanding of people by using FINE words. That atmosphere makes me wants to go there rather choosing another country to be visited. I want to go overseas to see what happens out there and what they have but if i cannot, its really fine if i only visit Singapore for several days. Oh ya, i love one quotes that i found in the back of security’s Jacket in Mustafa Center that said “Low crimes does not means no crime”. It makes me still aware with everything around me but for sure, i still feeling everything just “fine”, nothing to be scared of. i love Indonesia with any uniqueness and so on, but I hope Indonesia can create the atmosphere like that, and i will really enjoy my country more rather than other country.
