Abstract

Today, multiculturalism is characterised as an ideology, a policy, and also a discourse that leads to an extension of the multiculturalism agenda, and is becoming actual. At the same time, multiculturalism, being a discourse type itself, can be considered in several discourses. One of them is the postmodernist discourse. One of the most widespread statements is that multiculturalism displays a cultural situation of the postmodern. The postmodern epoch expands the content of multiculturalism. The postmodernist discourse expanding the messages of the concept brings multiculturalism up to date, emphasising more than ever the necessity of dialogue with a communicative component, and multiculturalism as a form (and/or a necessary condition) of coexistence in the modern polycultural world . Multiculturalism has something in common with the philosophical bases of the postmodern. Hence, connecting multiculturalism with the postmodern corresponds to a pluralistic vision of the postmodern, which as a whole characterises its mentality and, it is possible to say, is conformable in its value aims.
