Dialogue Among Different Cultures Sought 16 June , 2011

A NEED to “rethink and re-present our own” beliefs, in order to understand others, arises from the various cultures and religions of different countries, a philosophical theologian said before an international philosophy congress hosted by the University from May 23 to 26.

During the three-day conference Thomism and Asian Cultures: Celebrating 400 Years of Dialogue Across Civilizations, held at the Medicine Auditorium, Canadian professor William Sweet underscored the need to establish an “intercultural philosophy” that will ultimately “generate a shared, fruitful discussion granting equal rights to all.”

Intercultural philosophy is defined as “the endeavor to give expression to the many often marginalized voices of philosophy in their respective cultural contexts.”
