ABSTRACT
The article argues that transculturality or the existence of cross-cultural commonalities is fostered by two different factors operating at very different levels. One is the process of permeation of cultures and the other is related to the human condition. The conception of transculturality was intended to replace the older notion of single cultures. The older conception was characterized by ethnic foundation, social homogenization and intercultural delimitation. Contemporary cultures are characterized by hybridization at the macro-level.
