The texts in this collection are revised versions of presentations given at the Coimbra International Conference on the Semantics of Culture Why "Culture"?, held on November 24-25, 2011. If one wishes to identify a common thread among them and to succinctly describe this central theme, then it can only be expressed as the idea that the phenomenon of culture cannot be reduced to a substantialist vision of the diversity of manifestations of society and human being.
However, if one were to accept the concept of culture as a starting point for observing these manifestations, then it should also be adopted as a starting point for critical questioning, that is, for problematizing, not just as a theoretical solution. The texts in this volume contribute to this philosophical problematization by pointing out-each with its own perspective of analysis, of course-articulations of the phenomenon of culture as a theoretical object and as a thematic object.
