Timo Schmitz: “Implications of the absense of culture for the usage of its term” (2016) [PDF]

The ancient Greek used the term culture as opposite to nature. The term developed in a way nowadays, in which culture is everything and nothing, and the way the term is used in popular culture is insufficient and makes culture inexistent, as already shown in many of my articles. However, we cannot get rid off this term even if we realise the nonsensely way as we use it. Thus, there are several implications that I want to discuss in the article which you can download below.

Timo Schmitz: “The myth of culture – reloaded. Examples of its inexistence and borders of my thesis” (2016) [PDF]

In many of my articles, I stated the thesis that culture is in fact a ghost that we haunt. Culture as such does not exist! In this article, I want to undermine it with further examples to show the ridiculousness of the term culture. However, I also want to look self-critically at the border of my “culture does not exist”-thesis, and find solutions for this limits.
