Intercultural Philosophy

New Aspects and Methods


Friedrich G. Wallner, Florian Schmidsberger and Franz Martin Wimmer

This book is an anthology that focuses on topics of Intercultural Philosophy. Its main goal is to offer new impulses and important contributions to all discourses, discussions and researches on (other) cultures. The importance of Intercultural Philosophy seems to be obvious in a globalized world. Eleven authors participated in such a common research on cultural differences and peculiarities. Together they discuss four topics: concepts of a general approach of Intercultural Philosophy, the relationship of universalism and cultural differences, different methods, and certain cultural peculiarities. The contributions express that Intercultural Philosophy is not just a single question of philosophy. Instead it concerns philosophy in general, its possibilities, borders and main tasks.
