Chapter 9

In the post-agricultural revolution period, the human societies became more complex. Also, these societies became larger and the imagined order became clearer.  People also got used to the fictions and myths as soon as they were born. The people started to think depending on the way they were born and also individuals began behaving according to some standards. Also, the societies required that its members in a certain way, where they respect rules and regulations and laws. Basically, what happened in the human societies was that cultures were created and they required people to behave in a certain way and due to that strangers could work together. Culture bound strangers together and they had no any other option but to cooperate.


According to this chapter, the cultures that were formed by different human groups had their own legal, social and worldview systems that guided them. Each culture had its own uniqueness and their political arrangements were also unique and facilitated the running of human societies harmoniously. Noticeably, scholars of culture agree that each culture has its own uniqueness, because of the natural differences of people. The beliefs, values or norms of cultures are dissimilar; however, a culture is dynamic. Culture is dynamic in the sense that it can transform itself to another one, by simply leaving out some of its previous practices. In a nutshell, the chapter generally looks into the role of culture and it agrees that the social order people have today rooted from culture. Through culture, beliefs, values and norms were developed to guide behavior and organize people.
