Cultures in Dialogue



This book presents an attempt to relate different aspects of culture to one another in order to answer the question of how intercultural dialogues take place. Factors such as “exchange”, “education”, “identity” or “social networks” determine the everyday preconditions of our culture, which we call “normal culture” and which will be discussed intermedially on the basis of examples from different discourses. A series of twelve factors were selected. They provide information on the cultural foundations of our culture. All the questions raised in this text revolve around and penetrate cultural preconditions, developments and perspectives with the only aim of rediscovering normal culture as a place of fantasy.
