The meeting of different cultures, philosophies and religions today calls for an intensive and qualified discourse on the part of all concerned. Intercultural Philosophy seeks to develop such a discourse through a new orientation of thought that will allow for a discussion of all philosophical problems from an intercultural perspective. Arguing that no conceptual or terminological system should be unnecessarily privileged, Mall perceives intercultural philosophy as a stance taken in order to prevent any particular form from assuming an absolute position. In this important work he develops a new concept of intercultural philosophy and applies it to various philosophical disciplines.
