A Cultured Person
The expression of a “cultured person” mirrors the definition of culture in many ways.
It is almost impossible to not link these two concepts. Culture is the whole way of life of a distinct people or social group. In my opinion, “a cultured person” is the ideal result of the process of this development. Culture goes beyond different eating habits, folklore, and traditions. It covers everything from hairstyles and drinking habits to how to address your husband. A cultured person must be aware of his own cultural differences toward others, but I have seen some cases that show the opposite. This fact makes the definition of “cultured person” to be ambiguous. The point is to accept and to understand the lifestyle of other group of people without feeling to be part of a better or superior society. It is not only about the knowledge of the multicultural world, but also it is the fact to possess a unique perspective of the world based on his/her experience. We all must understand that cultures are also involved in one another. One’s personal experience of culture varies as much as one’s experience of religion, sports, or anything one can think of. Definitively, culture and multicultural education are related to one another. This fact urges the need to prepare people of the world for this multicolor society!
