Summary/Abstract: There is no other sphere of human values, experiences and actions as open and unfathomable in its many guises as the world of culture created by man. Participation in this world is concomitant with the process of understanding it. This is why there are so many approaches and schools, so many research orientations and strategies, which are aimed at bringing us closer to understanding the nature of culture and the ways in which it manifests itself. All this is done in the hope that we can comprehend culture and aid man who is so deeply involved in it. Thus reflection is born, and upon that reflection knowledge is built, and finally the study of culture follows. Regardless of this, the basic, and for the most part still unanswered questions, continue to be valid: How do we understand the subject of these studies? What are the motives behind pursuing them? How do we integrate the reflection, knowledge, and study with the more broadly understood human cognitive and social activity? How will this study allow us to overcome the constraints of time and space of our own cultures, methods, professional roles, canons of sensitivity and imagination, and make it possible to increase the potential and the dynamism of its development?
