From the Paper:

"Two general but major theoretical orientations provide the basic foundation for the present investigation. These guide the cultural and philosophical theories that are described in detail in the following chapter. The first relates to cultural theory in general; the second pertains to personal privacy. With regard to culture, it can be said in the most general terms that culture is the most basic determinant of the wants and behaviors of individuals. Culture is an important idea because it deals with the way people live and approach problem solving in a social and organizational context. Those growing up in a given society quickly learn a basic set of values, perceptions, preferences, and behaviors unique to that culture. These concepts are learned through a process of socialization which involves the family, social group, school, and other institutions. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that different cultural theories continually surface as researchers learn increasingly more about culture and society. New perspectives give rise to new theoretical bases for assessing culture. Many early anthropologists conceived of culture as a collection of traits. Characteristics and behaviors were spread from one society to another. However, critics of this approach pointed out that the theory failed to explain why certain traits spread and others do not."
