“Define and measure what you can and seek to understand the yet undefinable and currently unmeasurable through the evidence as it presents itself through thoughtful observation.” Alan D. Quilley CRSP
If we don’t get practical (even though we maybe technically and philosophically somewhat incorrect) we won’t be able to help anyone with changing the outcomes.
Our knowledge and abilities to measure “culture” may indeed be limited today. We need to continue our “attempts” to define the, as yet, undefinable factors that we “think” may be at play here. Over time, some of the many truths about culture will appear and what seems mysterious and hazy at the moment will become clearer and hence more manageable.
