In these conclusions, present perspectives on culture are summarised that have emerged over the past 100 years or so and have culminated in the most recent cultural theories. Explanations that can be derived, and which give answers to questions regarding cultural processes, are presented. Cultural synthesis, globalisation and the effects of cultural dominance are addressed as important aspects which are relevant not only for the present state of culture(s), but also for future reflections on intra-, trans-, multi- and intercultural processes. As the globalising culture contrasts sharply from previous cultures all along the timeline of human history, cultural theorists today are eager to understand the origin of these dynamics, as well as their mechanisms, which is an indispensable prerequisite for efficient intervention regarding increasing problems linked to, and caused by, globalisation.
