Culture is dependent on education just as education is dependent on culture. Cultures are sustained and transformed through the manner in which they communicate with the younger generation; it is at this level that they constitute their particular power and dynamic. Cultures are historical and regional. The blanket term "culture" comprises so many heterogeneous elements and aspects that it makes no sense to attempt to form them into a unified definition which could never do justice to the complexity of what culture is. Thus, not only does a culture consist of a particular language and a range of imaginary, litarary, artistic an musical creations, but also social structures, values and attitudes as well as social forms of living and their everyday enactment and performence.
