Being in the World

Fred Dallmayr

University Press of Kentucky

Chapter five elaborates on the absence of a homogenous global community. With an interactive approach, the chapter involves analysing relationships between the self and other and the familiarity and unfamiliarity. The chapter focuses on cross-cultural friendship, examining the modern roots of this conception in the political philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. The chapter addresses issues of Islamophobia and xenophobia and counters these phobias with the thoughts of a number of leading critical intellectuals, especially the international politics and law expert Richard Falk. To further critique what Dallmayr calls megaterror, attention is given to religious scriptures and to the testimony of some prominent Christian theologians.

Keywords:   Familiarity, Cross-cultural, Friendship, Thomas Hobbes, Islamophobia, Xenophobia, Richard Falk, Megaterror, Religion, scripture
