This paper intends to back the need for a theoretical definition of culture in Cultural Studies. The lack of theoretical definitions results in the shape of a field that is too nearly all things to all people, losing its original distinctive theoretical and methodological strength Theoretical definitions of culture are needed to allow fruitful theoretical debate, and to clarify Cultural Studies relationship with political practices. Theoretical definitions of culture should address culture as meaning and should be placed within general theories of action.
