Abstract: 'Today Europe is trying to achieve self-definition on the basis of its own history', wrote Michel Oriol and Francis Affergan in their study on Otherness and cultural differences, a few years ago. Has the time not come, they asked, to look beyond inward-looking conceptions of culture and to build up a universalism that would include cultural differences and not deny them? But the question of 'the other' was posited against the sense of ourselves. Whereas the former question might be put in the context of a timeless quest for a definition of human nature, most modern authors - and not least historians – expected that otherness be seen within specific historical and geographical contexts.
