HelloCustomerand welcome to JustAnswer.

I think you are probably looking for the German word "zeitgeist", which has been imported into English in its original form. From the Merriam-Webster online Dictionary, the definition is: "the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era".

The literal translation of the word is "time spirit" ("zeit" = "time" and "geist" = "spirit").
