After attending Jo F’s talk, i came back with a quote that is suitable for my thesis, from Geertz (1973):

“man is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spur, i take culture to be those webs, and the analysis of it to be therefore not an experimental science in search of a law but an interpretation of one in search of meaning” (5)
