Types of Culture

 According to contents there are two types of culture in each society.
1. Material Culture:
Material culture refers to the physical objects, resources, and spaces that people use to define their culture. Material culture includes all those man-made things and objects which human society has created for its physical welfare in times of peace and war. Items such as clothes, utensils, homes, roads, ornaments, T.V., radio, various machines, gadgets  and various means of transport and communication are some examples of material culture.
2. Non-material Culture:
 Non-material culture, in contrast, consists of the ideas, attitudes, and beliefs of a society. Material and non-material aspects of culture are linked, and physical objects often symbolize cultural ideas. The appropriateness of wearing certain clothing for specific events reflects non-material culture. Non-material culture includes all those ideals, attitudes and values which modify the behaviour of man, language, literature, art, music, religion, customs, traditions etc. are some of the examples of non-material culture
