challenge or clash


Explanation:
I have seen it used to mean a challenge.

Yet another sense is that produced below: "Clash"

According to the Gran Diccionari vessant can mean "the appearance of two opposing or simply different objects"

path, road


Explanation:
You may want to try this if you think of culture as, say, an autopista de peatge... In this context, una vessant is "an alternative road". Alternative redundant.
