Summary/Abstract: The problem of the Other, which has a long history and tradition in continental philosophy, has been increasingly articulated in recent years in the context of the problems of recognition, and hence of the rights of aliens in contemporary Europe, and the problems related to multiculturalism and intercultural discourse. Even before 2015, when the great wave of refugees flooded Europe, numerous philosophical discussions unfolded on these topics. The purpose of this article is, on the one hand, to present some of the most important aspects of the debates that took place between some prominent representatives of contemporary philosophical thought, namely - the debates between Jürgen Habermas and Charles Taylor, Axel Honneth and Nancy Fraser, Paul Ricoeur and Axel Honneth, as well as the discussion between Christoph Menke, Georg Lohmann and Dieter Thomä in the "Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie", and on the other hand to explore the various attempts of conceptualization of these problems by Jean Baudrillard, Bernard Waldefels and Raúl Fornet-Betancourt. The phenomenological-hermeneutic analysis of the arguments of these different au-thors allows us to draw certain conclusions and to suggest possible directions for future resolutions on these conflictual issues. The main thesis defended here is that the problem of the foreign and the aliens (foreigners) cannot be solved if it is detached from the context of the problems of recognition, translation and intercultural or multicultural dialogue.
