Methodical culturalism is a philosophical approach developed by Peter Janich and his pupils. The core statement of this approach is that science is not developed from purely theoretical considerations, but as a development of everyday, proto-scientific human behavior. That is to say, science is a stylized form of everyday knowledge-forming practice.

Thus, from the viewpoint of methodical culturalism, science is understood as a continuation of the practical processes of the everyday world and must be analyzed from this aspect systematically and methodically.

Methodical culturalism is a development of the methodical constructivism of the Erlanger school (known as "Erlanger constructivism").
