Culture variability and explanations

Cultural variability refers to the diversity of cultural and social areas. As different companies have different cultures. The diversity of human culture is remarkable. Values ​​and customs vary across cultures behavior is often radically contrasting ways (Broom and Sleznki, 1973). For example, Jews eat pork, while Hindus eat pork, but avoid beef. Cultural diversity or variation both between and within societies society. If we take the two airlines, Ethiopia and India, with large, sharp cultural differences between the two communities. On the other hand, the same society is distinct cultural variability. Cultural variability between society can lead to various health conditions and diseases. Thus, variations in dietary habits closely associated with these types of diseases. The spread of tapeworms in raw-meat-eating people can be a good example.
 We use the concept of subculture to identify the variability of cultures within a specific society. Sub culture is a culture that is shared by a group within a society (Stockard, 1997). We call this sub cultural groups (and their subcultures) exist within and as a smaller part of the larger, dominant culture. Examples of subculture is the culture of the university students, street children and prostitutes in Addis Ababa, the culture of medical professionals, etc.
 Why culture is different from company to company? Sociologists, anthropologists, cultural geographers and other social scientists to study the causes of cultural differences (between) society. Many arguments were given the diversity, including geographical factors, race determination, demographic factors span of interest and purely historical opportunity. Those who carried out his view that cultural differences are genetic racial determination. Geographical factors include: climate, altitude, etc. Along with the demographic factors are changes in the structure of population, population growth, etc., while overvoltage important goal culture varies from person to person interested life also varies. Cultural diversity is due to the almost historic opportunity; a certain group of people can develop a culture when exposed to certain historical events and opportunities.
 However, no explanation is sufficient in itself; anthropologists reject now very deterministic explanations, such as those based on race; rather than cultural differences are explained by more holistic statement.
