Content

Philosophical comprehension of culture is discussed in relation to religion, art, science and politics. Special attention is dedicated to the specificity of humanistic knowledge, as far as it finds its applicative sense in culture. To this a discussion of the influence of informative technologies upon culture in its social and creative meaning is annexed. Today the understanding of culture in its social context is above all connected with widespread problems of interculturality, which demand a philosophic reflection upon the comprehension of identities and differences. To this the elements of pop culture, which represents the predominating way of cultural intermediation, are annexed. Finally the sense of creativity, which eludes the cultural institution and shows its boundaries, is discussed.
