What is culture?

"What is culture?
The formation of attention."
-Simone Weil, "Writings," p. 19;
Quoted in Leonard Sweet's wonderful chapter in
"The Church in Emerging Culture; Five Perspectives," p.30
(most of the chapter is a free online read here...though a few pages-like the page I quoted-are maddeningly missing)
