Der Begriff der Philosophie im Spiegelkabinett der Kulturkomparatistik 

Back to issue: Zeitschrift für Kulturphilosophie 2008/1: Interkulturalität
EUR 14.90

Three exemplary models of how philosophical thinking is defined in the encounter with different cultures are critically discussed: 1. the self-centred model, in which other cultures are seen as preliminary stages of one's own way of thinking, 2. the competitive model, which calculates different traditions according to comparitve strengths and weaknesses, 3. the model of philosophy based upon the distinction between scientific and mythical ways of thinking, and which determines the value of philosophical assertions by reference to the employment of specific methods of representation.
