Studii şi cercetări ştiinţifice. Seria filologie (Scientific Studies and Research. Philological Series) invites you to partake in an exchange of ideas on plurilingualism and interculturality, a theme widely approached nowadays by specialists in anthropology, sociology, political theory, marketing and human resources. It relates to language, literature, folklore, linguistics, literary theory, literature-history and criticism, dramatic arts, anthropology etc.
It has become common knowledge that the recent perception of the culture goes beyond – or rather integrates at a higher level – the heritage of the bookish culture. Perceived as it is, culture ignores neither its social nor its pragmatic dimension; with this new acception, it equally involves an ensemble of practices, representations and habits that – just due to his belonging to a collectivity – is placed at the individual’s disposal and helps define his identity.
Above the intellectual models of the moment, the universal cultural patrimony is – in its broadest sense – an intercultural product. It comprises the rich synthesis of elements loaned and inherited from a large variety of ethnic groups, of spiritual traditions and social practices which, in the course of time, have met, competed with each other and interacted.
