This volume constitutes a first step towards an ever-deferred interdisciplinary dialogue on cultural traits. It offers a way to enter a representative sample of the intellectual diversity that surrounds this topic, and a means to stimulate innovative avenues of research.

Culture is often defined and studied with an emphasis on cultural features. For UNESCO, "culture should be regarded as the set of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features of society or a social group".
