Abstract

Culture includes all those components through which a nation dialogues with other cultures. This is how Cultural Diplomacywas born.However, Culture in all its manifestations is an essential tool for understanding the identity of a people and represents the fundamental living heritage to constructively address the objectives of globalization and contemporaneity. It is essential to reflect on the ideological origins of the value of culture and start from these ideologies to reconstruct a methodological path that can support laws and treaties of international collaboration. In this context is inserted the reinterpretation of the critical ideology of many scholars who have made important contributions to understand the meaning and role of culture. Among these scholars, the German philosopher Ernst Cassirer was able to reread the concept critically and was able to put the value of culture at the center.This paper aims to address a rereading of some of Cassier’s writings and bring readers closer to reflection on the value of culture as fundamental to a more inclusive and forward-looking world. The considerations analyzed in the contribution, are also supported in several contemporary bibliographical references which provide an excellent basis for future research developments on these specific topics.This topic introduces also important reflections in dialogue with the international congress MondiaCult 2022, promoted by UNESCO in Mexico City.
