Of all the living organisms in the world, plant and animal, humans start life least equipped. We have almost no instincts for survival, such that most of what we know and do, we need to learn. That stuff which we learn and share is culture. Most of it we also take for granted. And that's where anthropology comes in. Anthropologists study this learnt, shared, and assumed stuff; stuff which we call culture.
