Abstract:The concept of culture has historically been provisional, meaning it is structured by a fluctuation of temporary methods and theories anthropologists have developed to explain and understand culture from the start of the twentieth century to the present. The appropriately labeled concepts from anthropologists used to explain culture, such as bio-psychological functionalism, structural functionalism, cultural ecology, culturology, semeiotic hermeneutics, and cultural materialism, led to my reexamination of past anthropological philosophies using present understandings of organizational culture and its processes. It is my contention that the variation in the philosophical conceptions of culture reflects a failure to recognize organizational culture and its processes, mainly, the aspects of organizational life one finds necessary to operate in a manner acceptable to its members. This allows the reader to understand the organization of culture, which is identified by the historic connection of cultural anthropology and organization theory, and a literature review of Bronislaw Malinowski, Alfred Reginald Radcliffe-Brown, Leslie White, Julian Steward, Clifford Geertz, and Marvin Harris's methods and theories explaining an underlying organizational framework. In addition, through an empirical case study of a wireless telecommunication culture and a case study examining Indonesian culture, the term organizational culture is defined and understood. In this paper, I argue that an organizational framework is a crucial theoretical and methodological perspective for interpreting culture. Through such an organizational framework, the conflicting philosophical concepts of culture can ultimately be reconciled.
