Cultural Invention[edit]

Refers to any development created by people that is not physical in nature. Cultural inventions include constructs such as language, belief systems, and linguistic and political structures. These are normally passed down from generation to generation, as well as to others outside of the group in question. Studies focusing on the subject normally show how cultural inventions become embedded in the culture of a certain group, rather than discovering which sections of a culture are invented.
