ABSTRACT. The paper begins by exploring the concept of intercultural philosophy in the Western tradition and the operating assumption of moral universalism of liberal cosmopolitanism. The second part of the paper investigates the “politics of difference” inspired by Nietzsche and semiotic accounts of the self and culture developed by various poststructuralist philosophers. Finally, the paper picks up on Rorty’s pragmatist notion of “the cultural politics of conversation”. pp. 30–53
