Culture - tribal, religious, national, European and world. Culture - elite, mass and youth. Culture - from the dances and masks of the Dogon tribe to the comic strips and the Internet. Culture - from the primitive art to Andy Worhole and Christo, from the Temple of Amon in Luxor to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, from the suspended gardens of Semiramis, to the Japanese zen-gardens. Culture, embodied by painting, sculpture, poetry, fiction, music, the theatre and the cinema.... Nothing escapes the penetrating glance of Jérôme Clément, the French researcher of culture, and his inquisitive 15-year-old daughter. They surf through the infinite spheres of human existence indifferent ages and spiritual spaces to find an answer to the question "What is culture and why do we need it so much ?" The thin booklet is valuable not only for the knowledge it gives, but most of all for the fact that it awakens curiosity and the wish for more culture, for a cultural self-identification in the present-day global world, threatened by depersonalization.
