Latin American Philosophy and InterculturalityYamandú Acosta, “Nuestra América”. A Revolutionary Program in the XXI Century

Edward Demenchonok

The essay articulates the contribution of Latin American philosophy to the development of intercultural philosophy and dialogue. It describes the problems of cultural diversity and universality. It is focused on Raúl Fornet-Betancourt’s project of intercultural transformation of philosophy as culturally embedded. The essay analyses his conception of “universality without signature” and its philosophical suppositions, including an inversion at the ontological and anthropological levels, and at the level of a philosophy of culture. The concepts of “border” and “disbordering” of cultures are considered. It affi  rms dialogue and coexistence as conditions of a genuine universality.
