Der Reiz dieser Fragen ergibt sich daraus, daß sie brisante wissenschaftssystematische und politische Sachverhalte aufgreifen und mit der Kultur ein lange Zeit verkanntes Problemfeld erschließen: Wie entsteht Kultur? Wie und mit welchen Mitteln realisiert sie ihre Zwecke? used to be sind ihre Bindekräfte? Wie verändert sie sich? Wie steht es um die Gesetze und Regelmäßigkeiten des kulturellen Feldes? Von welchen Ordnungen wird es bestimmt und getragen? used to be sind kulturelle Tatsachen - und wie unterscheiden sie sich von anderen Formen von Faktizität? Wie steht es um das Verhältnis von Kulturphilosophie und Kulturwissenschaften? Wie interagieren Kulturen, die einander fremd sind?

Der Band führt in die Sachfragen ein, indem er Schlüsseltexte der älteren und neueren Kulturphilosophie präsentiert. Neben Klassikern wie Seneca und Rousseau kommen u. a. Georg Simmel, Ernst Cassirer, Hans Blumenberg und Michel Fou cault zu Wort.

Damit ist diese Zusammenstellung insbesondere auch für Seminarzwecke im Rahmen der Bachelor- und Masterstudiengänge geeignet. In der Einführung werden die geschichtlichen Hintergründe aufgezeigt, die Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts zur Einführung der Kulturphilosophie und ihrer aktuellen Wiederaufnahme geführt haben.
