Discover more about the origins of Intercultural Philosophy. New approaches are on the rise in Philosophy, and this course will help you reflect on which approach may be best suited to the research you are working on.
Addressing a fascinating subject, this programme delves into the methods, critical revisions, and alternative approaches that have been brought forward following discussions on the decolonisation of knowledge and the end of Eurocentrism.

In a time of increased contact between peoples from all over the world, the traditional Eurocentric perspective in Philosophy is on the retreat. In this course, you will question and debate whether intercultural, cross-cultural, or even transcultural approaches represent the way forward for global philosophy that distances itself from cultural hegemony. You will do so with the guidance of lecturers from various backgrounds who between them bring a wealth of expertise and experience in the field.


Intercultural philosophy is a young branch of the philosophical tree. It was developed by thinkers such as Ram Adhar Mall, Heinz Kimmerle, and Franz Wimmer just decades ago. The intercultural approach was not developed ex nihilo, as renewals in philosophy always reflect the need to adapt to changes in the sciences, in society, or in philosophy as a practice itself.
Two major factors may be responsible for its development: the first was the growing presence of academics from formerly colonised countries in the increasingly globalising discipline of philosophy. The second was the accompanying realisation that the time of a hegemonic, Eurocentric philosophy that had the upper hand since the Enlightenment was finally over.

Who should join?

Open to Master's students, PhD candidates, and professionals from all disciplines.
The course is open for PhD students and Research Master's students who want to investigate Intercultural Philosophy, its origins, and the critical revisions and alternatives that have been proposed. We welcome participants from all countries and encourage you to apply.

Additional Requirements

Students can have a background in Philosophy, Political Theory, Cultural Anthropology, Development Studies, or any discipline that deals with interculturality. Professionals with academic skills may also benefit from the course.
