give a definition of "civilized man", first of all have in mind the following: if a person complies with the rules and the universally recognized norms of behavior patterns in society - a kind of narrow-minded code of honor.In principle, this "duty" of "cultural rights" to the community and end.

Cultural man as a social object

For society it is important that a person's behavior was due to the limits of decency and the law.Society, in principle, willing to accept the fact that by himself or with his family people can be anything, but went out of the door of his home, in civilized man must operate the toggle switch on the norms and self-control.

That is, in the narrow-minded notion of cultural consciousness of man - a man brought up, observe the rituals and etiquette "in front of strangers,"
"on the people," "in society."If a person owning all forms of etiquette, and even higher education is there, then, as a rule, such a person is raised in the public status of a cultural level of a person to the level of "intelligent person".

Human behavior "at the door" in the calculation in this case is not accepted."Behind the door," you can burp and picking his nose, yelling and slight households or anonymously evil troll the Internet even if not for the money, but only by the call of "metuscheysya soul."But if such an individual will give way to the old lady in the transport and will hold the elevator door for a neighbor, everything - the status of civilized man he assured.

culture as a set of executable conditions

In the early nineteenth century, the word "culture" is more relevant to agricultural science than extrapolated to humans.The word appeared in the Enlightenment - in the late 18th century, but gradually get accustomed for a long time.In Europe and Russia of the 19th century said - civilized man, meaning about what is now embedded in the concept of cultural rights.In the early 30-ies Dictionary Ushakova interpreted the concept of "civilized man" like a man "cultivated."Only due to the urbanization of the world, when he began to roll a separate "urban culture" as opposed to nature, the civilized and cultural concepts become blurred.By the way, "cultural" were the epithets added to form combinations: a cultural revolution, the cultural level and cultural ties, a man of culture, iea pointer to some achievements, progress and development of the individual.

Currently, linguistics treats the word "culture" as "the amount of genetically inherited information transmitted in a society from generation to generation."Sociology is also ready to offer its own interpretation of the concept of "culture - a set of traditions, customs, social norms, rules governing the behavior of those who live now, and transferred to those who will live tomorrow."

From a philosophical point of view, according to Spengler and Toynbee, culture - is only part of the component of civilization.A cultured man - a man able to absorb large amounts of information, analyze it, interpret, construct causal relationships.The role of education and self-control in the formation of the cultural human philosophers, of course, not denied.

Thus, a cultured man - a man who keeps the basic rules of conduct of a civilized society, but correlates themselves and society only in the same proportion, which allows him to be a person and an individual, rather than a "cog in the system," "majority", part of a "single fist"and" common people. "
