Mirzaee Moqadam stressed:
The informed and motivated researchers and experts have to take the essential measures to investigate in this regard and offer the correct and useable definitions of the cultural observation. If a program or activity is to be suggested in the domain of the cultural observation, it will be inevitable to make use of words and terms like cultural goods, cultural observation, cultural lookout, currentology, cultural space, precious goods, satisfaction, etc.; whereas cultural managers don’t have a common and understandable perception of these terms and the definitions of these words differ among them, Davoud Mirzaee added, public relations office of Islamic Development Organization reported.
Stating that cultural goods have various definitions, he specified: these definitions are divided into various domains by the Cultural Observation and Studies Office. Cultural goods are divided into media cultural goods (written and non-written) and non-media goods (dolls, computer games, etc.).
Mirzaee Moqadam stated that cultural observation means to analyze and consider the values, attitudes, norms and behaviors of the public, the level of national and general culture and sub-cultures, and it aims at identifying the cultural issues and analyzing the cultural processes in various domains including religious culture, political culture, economic culture, civilized culture and scientific culture.
