Mutual Recognition and the Challenge of Unfamiliar Familiarities

From: Multicultural Dynamics and the Ends of History


In trying to understand our world as "multicultural," we must think through and with the coexistence of many different independent cultures sharing a common space or territory. While it is true that the world has always contained many different cultures, what our "multicultural" world points to is the close proximity, indeed, the quotidian coexistence of different cultures.
