As an alternative to universalism and particularism, Intermedialities: Philosophy, Arts, Politics proposes 'intermedialities' as a new model of social relations and intercultural dialogue. The concept of 'intermedialities' stresses the necessity of situating debates concerning social relations in the divergent contexts of new media and avant-garde artistic practices as well as feminist, political, and philosophical analyses.
