In this volume the relevance of a reflection on inculturation in connection with American thought and cultural heritage is discussed by three authors. Whilst Theodore F. Zuern presents the case of native American cultures, Joseph A. Tetlow deals with America, the “melting pot” of cultures, societies and denominations. Peter Schineller analyses the theological value structure as found in the pluricultural, technotronic world of the United States. In this way, he applies to a particular country what Marcello de Azevedo in his “Inculturation and the Challenges of Modernity” has elaborated for the world at large.
