This book offers a concise overview of the development of  intercultural philosophy since the early 1990s, focusing on one of its  key pioneers Heinz Kimmerle (1930– 2016).

Building on influences  from Gadamer, Heidegger and Derrida, Kimmerle’s approach to  intercultural philosophy is radical and fosters epistemic justice.  Kimmerle critically reflected on his own western philosophical  tradition, highlighting the problems of a discourse based on a dominant  concept of rationality, and of excluding different approaches and  participants. Instead, Kimmerle developed an alternative way of  thinking, emphasizing the importance Of recognizing philosophies of  different cultures. He focused particularly on African philosophies in  academic discourse. In the book, the many layers of Kimmerle’s  intercultural philosophy are revealed, exploring how dialectics,  hermeneutics, deconstruction and decolonization can contribute to  epistemic justice. The author goes beyond Kimmerle and demonstrates how  Kimmerle’s approach can be further enhanced by using an intersectional  approach and by engaging in dialogue with female philosophers and  artists.

This new study, which also introduces unpublished and  untranslated texts from Kimmerle’s work in German and Dutch, will be of  considerable interest to researchers of continental philosophy,  intercultural and African philosophy, political philosophy, decolonial  and feminist studies.
