The question "Why culture" calls for a rethinking of the account of culture and the method itself of the cultural analysis. The author traces back the steps of this critical path, suggesting an interpretative reading of the contributions to the conference Why "culture"?, held in Coimbra in 2011. In particular, the individuation of the three topical cores: Culture and expression, Incommensurability and interculturality, and Culture and philosophy, conveys the crucial contents of the debate across an ideal reconstruction of the Übergang from the critique of reason to the critique of culture, Cassirer’s philosophy of culture providing the framing of the recent interest in the expressive fundament of all forms of knowledge.
Keywords: Cassirer, Culture, Experience, Expression, Interculturality, Modernity.
