DUSSEL, Enrique. El siglo XXI: nueva edad en la historia de la filosofía en tanto diálogo mundial entre tradiciones filosóficas. Sig. Fil [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.23, pp.119-140. ISSN 1665-1324.

This paper argues the following points: 1) It is necessary to affirm that all of humanity has always sought to address certain core universal problems that are present in all cultures. 2) The rational responses to these core problems first acquire the shape of mythical narratives. 3) The formulation of categorical philosophical discourses is a subsequent development in human rationality, which does not however negate all mythical narratives. These discourses arose in all the great urban Neolithic cultures (only in initial form). 4) Modern European philosophy confused its economic, political and cultural domination, and the resulting crises in other philosophical traditions, with an Eurocentric universality claim, which must be questioned. 5) There are formal universal aspects in which all regional philosophies can coincide, and which respond to the core problems at an abstract level. 6) All of this impels entry into a new age of inter-philosophical dialogue, respectful of differences and open to learning from the useful discoveries of other traditions. 7) A new philosophical project must be developed that is capable of going beyond Eurocentric philosophical Modernity, by shaping a global Trans-modern pluriverse, drawing upon the discarded -by the Modernity- own resources of peripheral, subalternand postcolonial philosophies.

Keywords : interphilosophical dialogue; history of philosophy; critique of eurocemtrism; transmodernity.
