What is the use of culture?

From a biological point of view, culture is an integration of the genetic heritage that, over time, in the human being has acquired its own autonomy. Each cultural adaptation is the solution of a problem, the main function of culture is therefore to give support to our lives, so it is an asset having an enormous practical value. It is good to remember that there are also other purposes, such as transmitting features of collective identity: every region has its own dialect, every generation has its own vocabulary, but all languages are equivalent to each other, these differences are not solutions to different problems, they are just like the innocuous individual genetic variations, which don’t damage or favor the survival, but still have a fundamental role in evolution.
When we talk of cultural management, however, we intend first of all to assess precisely what culture we really need in life, from an essentially practical point of view, because the environment where we live, and then our problems, are deeply changed and many of our cultural traditions, starting with many clichés, are no longer valid.
