The article presents shortly a new approach to philosophy, namely intercultural philosophy. Te author describes two views of intercultural philosophy, one presented by Raul Fornet-Betancourt, a Latin-American philosopher, and the second presented by Franz Wimmer from Vienna University. Intercultural philosophy can be briefly described in two points: first, there is a need to look at the history of philosophy in a new way, and second, each systematic philosophical question should be considered in the polylogue communication (i.e. concerning possibly many points of view from different cultural background). This new approach towards philosophy is also situated in a broader context of a general debate among social sciences that also requires an intercultural or multicultural approach in each research.
