: also mean simply "all fields/areas"? I've come across what appears to be this meaning in a book I'm translating, and I want to make sure I'm not misunderstanding it. Many thanks.

Here is what you find online in the Cambridge American Dictionary:
"When people talk about walks of life, they are referring to different levels of social position or achievement"
