Summary/Abstract: Taking into consideration two important texts that deal with the peculiarities of Internet communication, the author argues that such an issue cannot be developed properly without a general notion of culture. The latter is always present whenever a specific cultural phenomenon is being discussed. The more broadly the phenomenon is considered, the broader the inherent general notion of culture would be. As an illustration to this view, the author discusses the notion of culture which the two works share, corrects his own, and relates both of these to Clifford Geerz’s interpretative-hermeneutic concept of culture. Thus, a complicated paradigm of culture is constructed, which interprets, in a complementary way, the findings of both authors considered, on the one hand, and on the other, the author’s own notion of culture existing hitherto.
