From specialists, professionally engaged in the study of cultural phenomenon, often required considerable intellectual courage for a clear assessment of the situation, which would not cause the slightest doubt, from their not too distant predecessors. In his study, the author refers to the original meaning of the concept of culture, considering its genetic relationship with the ritual, explains the transformation that occurred with the ideas of religion and morality, influenced by the rationalistic approaches that prevail in the Western view, with the beginning of a New time.
