  • A category of objects, people, behaviors, or places that are considered by a culture to be dangerous, offensive, or disruptive to the social order. In anthropology, taboos are defined by a particular culture, but in psychoanalysis, a taboo is a condition of the uncon scious, pointing to behaviors that all humans must repress. For more information, see Douglas (1966).
