The Analysis of Culture.
Hall, Edward T., Jr.; Trager, George L.
This article sets forth a hypothesis and methodology for the analysis of culture and specific cultural systems. Viewing man as a mammal, a member of society, and a participant in culture, the authors construct a framework of culture analysis which examines the content, structure, integration, and configurations of culture; and syntheses of cultural systems. The establishment of a frame of reference which permits an analysis of any culture is noted to be the principle purpose of this article. A bibliography and schematic tables are included. (RL)
