Interculturality is one of the central issues of our time. The coexistence of members of various cultural groups characterizes most modern societies. The conditions of such diversity are prominent issues on the agendas of national and international organizations.

'Interculturality,' as it is used here, denotes the entire scope of communication and interaction between different cultures.
'Culture' is understood as the life world of communities with a common tradition. Most cultures, especially the modern ones, are multicultural in their composition and are defined by intercultural differences.
