Meanings Of The Notion Of Culture In Intercultural Research
Angelica-Nicoleta ONEA
Review of Economic and Business Studies (REBS) , 2010,
Abstract: There are many meanings given to the notion of culture. Various contents related to it are delimited according to the specialty field or the investigated area. Moreover, the overlapping or distinction between culture and civilization also occurs. An inventory and an analysis of the aforementioned aspects could be a subject for exhaustive research. We are not aiming at such an approach, our intention is to analyze the philosophies circumscribed to this concept in some of the most important investigations carried out in the field of intercultural management so as to distinguish in a very precise manner the sense given and to focus on the elements that allow us to build a definition with an operational content in this area of research. For this purpose, we also identify the perspectives that allowed us to develop a functionalist-instrumental pragmatic approach.

Nordlit : Tidsskrift i litteratur og kultur , 2009,
Abstract: The origins of the notion of both text and document can be traced back to antiquity. Over the course of their respective histories – which I will not go into at this juncture – the meanings of both terms have evolved. Beyond the commonly used meanings, there are numerous other usages in various fields of specialization.

From the informational paradigm to the paradigm of corporeal signifiers : a topical tool for the researcher on High Dilution  [cached]
Richard Blostin
International Journal of High Dilution Research , 2011,
Abstract: The paradigm of corporeal signifiers of Madeleine Bastide and Agn ¨s Lagache is very close to the informational paradigm of Claude Levy-Strauss. We will show that this paradigm is compatible with the main results of the research on High Dilution. It can be a very good tool to locate the differents studies on HD and can be of great help for the researcher. The paradigm shows us that the future must also be part of basic research; but it seems important to differentiate experimental studies and basic research. This basic research has to be organized along with conventional researchers, experts in their own areas

Abstract: Wine culture is a culture between material and spirit. It takes the material as the carrier and it contains profound spirit in material life. China has a deep and long source of drinking culture, which has a complete seepage into the different domains of human life. As a special way of culture, drinking culture has a unique status in Chinese traditional culture. Today, the West's wine drinking culture, to a large extent, has an impact of China's liquor drinking culture. This article analyzes and compares the drinking culture between the East and the West, including the relation between the drinking culture and literature, art and wine games etc, pointing out that the difference of the drinking culture between the East and the West is actually a way of different thinking. China's drinking culture mainly show the humanistic dimension, with the poetry and literature and a long history of wine games etc, while western drinking culture is only to the respect and appreciation of the wine itself. For Chinese and the West, a different understanding of the drinking culture, the key is to make the best wine culture develop, and better for human service, which requires the integration of Chinese and Western wine culture. Therefore along with the globalization of world economy, the drinking culture is day by day boiling the head monopoly with its unique charm in cultural communication of the world. Comparing the difference between Chinese and Western drinking culture can perform the unique charm of Chinese wine culture, as well make more and more people in the world understand the wine culture and enjoy the wine culture.
Simetria e entropia: sobre a no??o de estrutura de Lévi-Strauss
Almeida, Mauro W. B. de;
Revista de Antropologia , 1999, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-77011999000100010
Abstract: in a famous but often misunderstood article, lévi-strauss defines the notions of structure and model, and asserts the significance of these notions for the social sciences. we find there notions such as "group", "topology" and "order", as well as the distinction between "mechanical models" and "statistical models", and a classification of the social sciences (history, sociology, etnography and ethnology) based on such notions. it this a residue of "scientificism", to be discarded in later works, and to be contrasted with the "humanism" of tristes tropiques, for instance? the answer is no, not only because such notions stay alive in lévi-strauss? later works, but also because some of the most basic ideas on society and history, present in tristes tropiques, spring from them. it is true that lévi-strauss uses such notions in a metaphorical mode, so that it is useless to seek in his texts precise scientific definitions. by employing such notions, always guided by a conscious effort towards combining sensibility and reason, and disrespecting the currently trendy cleavage between "geistwissenschaften" and "naturwissenchaften", lévi-strauss has expressed some of his central themes. one of them is the significance of symmetry as a fundamental property of culture and nature alike. another theme is the view of history as a loss of symmetry. these basic themes are interspersed in his analyses of kinship and myth, and also in many texts on music and painting. the research program formulated by lévi-strauss in his article on "the notion of structure in anthropology", as well as in la pensée sauvage, often treated as if it were outdated, remains influential outside the anthropological mainstream, in disciplines such as neuroscience, ethnoscience and the theory of self-organizing systems. this article tries to explain why.
Levi-Strauss’s Worry—A Review of Race and History, Race and Culture

Modern Anthropology (MA) , 2016, DOI: 10.12677/MA.2016.44005
Race and History, Race and Culture is a monograph which Levi-Strauss wrote for the discussion of racism. In this book, Levi-Strauss not only analyzes the essence of racism, but also demonstrates the true meaning of cultural diversity and its significance to human civilization. Levi-Strauss argues that the most significant meaning of cultural diversity is to remain multiple possibilities for human civilization. Moreover, people should also try their best to keep the cultural diversity from the evasion of aggressive modern civilization.
