Abstract

The historical events of the 21st century have once again put the topic of Culture at the center of international debates. Culture certainly has a fundamental value for the peace and stability of the world and constitutes the set of values that give meaning to the community. Culture, in fact, includes all those components through which a nation dialogues with other cultures. This is how Cultural Diplomacy was born. However, it is essential to reflect on the ideological origins of the value of Culture and to start from these ideologies in an attempt 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 Ernst Cassirer and his desire to put the value of Culture back at the center. In fact, Culture in all its manifestations is an essential tool for understanding the identity of a people and represents the material and intangible heritage fundamental to deal constructively with the objectives of globalization and contemporary. The German philosopher, who was familiar with the theories of Kant and Hegel, had written extraordinary pages on which it is very important to return to reflect. This contribution aims to address a re-reading of some of Cassier's writings and bring readers closer to reflecting 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 bibliographic references that are an excellent basis for future research developments on these specific issues. Keywords: Ernst Cassirer, Culture, Art, critical idealism, Symbolic values.
