Summary/Abstract: Kitchen in Bishkek is an authorised transcription of a conversation which took place in autumn 2012, in the capital of Kirgizstan. The discussion, inspired by a visit to the local museum, was concerning the problems of a cultural reception of the human reaction to biological and non-biological needs. Using Bronisław Malinowski’s conception, the authors have pondered upon a possibility of creating a theory of culture, which would make a use of local differences of reactions to universal human needs.
