ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the philosophy of Confucianism. The postmodern mood is well disposed to pluralism. It is decentered whose principium is ready, receptivity to difference, above all, it brings to focus and even preeminence the marginalized other in philosophical discourse. The postmodern deconstructs the modern. Post modernity as the philosophical counter-discourse of modernity is post-western. Hermeneutics rules the life and limes of post modernity. It relegates the jesterly metaphor of an interpreter to the role played by the postmodernist, whereas the priestly metaphor of a legislator is reserved for the modernist. The interpreter facilitates communication between autonomous participants, while the legislator authenticates the validity of opinions by his superior knowledge. Dialogism, as it has become known, now a days, is the result of the momentous discovery. In dialogism, there is nothing holier than the unalienable presence of thou. In other words, the other as thou is the soul of dialogue.
