Summary/Abstract: The sentence, or “rule” created by Andrzej Kapiszewski, about building bridges over cultural barriers is an unusually interesting proposition in the world of global scope of cultural processes that cause many divisions, confl icts, but also create many opportunities for cooperation and mutual enrichment. “Bridging cultural boundaries” is a formula that can combine many sciences, including pedagogy of intercultural relations, which is focused on shaping attitudes, intercultural competences, stimulating perspective of cognitive openness, tolerance and crossing the barriers posed by cultural stereotypes. The postulate of “building bridges” may refer to the old perspective of Jagiellonian values, sensitizing towards cultural diversity, although in search of common and fundamental features of community, tolerance and cooperation. Three types of values seem to be the basis on which integration activities can be based, it is humanity, dialogue and development, which, taken as a whole, generate the axiological basis of Andrzej Kapiszewski’s formula.
