The challenges of today’s multicultural scenarios seem to no longer be given in terms of resolution/dissolution of differences, of identitarian politics, of separatist politics, but instead, of reception and management of differences, assimilation and management of conflicts, acceptance and management of the increasingly next identitarian distances-diversities. To generally assume a political and moral attitude of acceptance, inclusion and recognition is not to be simply the most suitable and wise solution in order to decrease the risk of conflicts, human rights’ violations and so on, but it does seem to be the one way to succeed in progress and emancipation for present and future global civilisation. From a comparative analysis through Ricœur’s approach of mediation, Galtung’s transcendent method and Ikeda’s philosophy of human revolution, this paper offers a specific perspective on multiculturalism, underlining the centrality of the research of a new universal humanism with a multicultural and interreligious basis.

Abstract

The challenges of today’s multicultural scenarios seem to no longer be given in terms of resolution/dissolution of differences, of identitarian politics, of separatist politics, but instead, of reception and management of differences, assimilation and management of conflicts, acceptance and management of the increasingly next identitarian distances-diversities. To generally assume a political and moral attitude of acceptance, inclusion and recognition is not to be simply the most suitable and wise solution in order to decrease the risk of conflicts, human rights’ violations and so on, but it does seem to be the one way to succeed in progress and emancipation for present and future global civilisation. From a comparative analysis through Ricœur’s approach of mediation, Galtung’s transcendent method and Ikeda’s philosophy of human revolution, this paper offers a specific perspective on multiculturalism, underlining the centrality of the research of a new universal humanism with a multicultural and interreligious basis.
