Intercultural dialogue: A sign of postmodernity?
The aim of the paper is to explore the presuppositions of intercultural dialogue on the background of the analysis and model typology of dialogical speech acts. One of the unexpected consequences of the postmodern developments in Western philosophy is a fundamental crisis of its traditional universalist paradigm. This paradigm is challenged by an ambitious pluralist one, which is rooted in cultural world diversity. The paper explores a justified philosophical answer to a possible intercultural dialogue. It also asks the question what inherent elements and what types of dialogue should create the basis of such an „intercultural speaking“.
