Abstract

This article discusses three models of continuity and discontinuity as the subjects of an intercultural philosophy based on the historical experiences of peoples and cultures, instead of on hypothetical and purely theoretical reflections. There are three main models, each of them dominating a specific cultural area: the Western model of discontinuity between tradition and modernity, the Eastern model of juxtaposing the old and the new, and the Islamic model of change through continuity as it exists, for instance, in Southeast Asia. Each model represents a specific way of negotiating tradition and modernity. Each of them has developed particular tools for modernization and is characterized by specific tensions and challenges as well as by struggling with setbacks and imbalances.
