The Symbolic Dimension

Anthropological Studies in Culture, Religion and Education

By Jarema Drozdowicz

Key issues in the contemporary debates on culture seem to be accompanied by the problem of meaning and the dynamics of it. Today, the global dimension of culture is a significant factor of the problem, especially when we speak of cultural identity or intercultural communication. This book presents critical points of cultural change that we may observe in many areas of local and global ecumene. The emerging of new currents, processes, and phenomena, as well the transformation of older ones, is evidence of the fact that culture cannot be regarded as a static whole, enclosed in a tangible framework of objectified artifacts. Thus, culture is taken here as a specific narrative on the human condition, with all its imponderables.
