Geography

Should geographers regard culture and social customs as generalizations about a group of people, or should they say it comes from people's interaction with the physical environment?

asked by Ashley
  1. It seems to me that culture and social customs are more generalizations about a group of people, rather than their physical environment. When people move to other parts of the country or the world, they tend to keep their culture.
