Recent research at the intersection of culture studies and cognitive sciences- both under the name of Cultural Neurosciences and Cognitive Culture Studies-has shown that culture and cognition are strongly interrelated. Tacit dimensions grounded in cultural experience seem to have a former widely ignored influence on how people feel and think. Therefore, there seems to be evidence for a double interdependence of culture and cognition: as well as the mind shapes culture, culture shapes the mind. The plasticity of the brain is the condition both for the possibility and for the necessity of cultural learning and exercising. Insights in the processes of this interrelation might help to understand the conditions of intercultural communication, its limits, and its potential. More than just a tool for better communication, knowledge on the relation between culture and cognition will help to define, how people and peoples are and will be able to live together.
