The Multicultural Mind

Luigi Anolli



Nowadays the monocultural mind is a device that is crucial for the acquisition of the home culture and to define one’s identity, but it is also a limit because it encourages people to see cultures as inadequate or even as a threat. In current social conditions we need to promote a multicultural mind, capable of acquiring and managing a multiplicity of cultural models distinct from one another in terms of faith, values, emotions and practices. The challenge of the future is to train people to have a multicultural mind, able to co-exist in a more tolerant, just and free pluralist world.
