Can contemporary thought make its way into the Third Millennium? The philosophers who have contributed to this work have attempted to expose, each one of them using different approches, the ruses by which metaphysics conceals violence, Western reason considers itself the sole holder of truth, and thought casts its shadows on an otherwise unthinkable world.
Each author has strived to reconsider the different nuances of reason, history and tradition, which have been nourished by the achievements and failures arising from encounters with the 'Other'. There is no turning away from what is strange or baffling - the fissures, intervals, lapses and impurities. For everything seems to indicate that the pathways of thought are still to be discovered, remade, and invented.
