Such a general concept is culture that to give it a strict and precise definition would be difficult. Many philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, historians and linguists have tried to define culture from their own perspective. It is estimated that as many as two hundred definitions have been given, although what has been offered is far from being universally acknowledged or satisfactory. The reason why the concept of culture is so general is that cultural phenomena are almost omnipresent.
