The Polish DOM (house/home) in its physical, social, and cultural aspects
Uniwersytet Marii Curie-Skłodowskiej
This chapter presents the concept of HOUSE/HOME in the Polish context. The concept of house/home/DOM is universal, pan-European, supernational, but also culture-specific. It is universal because it constitutes the centre of a person’s world, the place from which the person views reality. In the Polish context, DOM functions as a physical object but also as a social, national and cultural value.
