The essay evokes the spirit of Hegel in an attempt to understand contem- porary issues of ethical witness, historical memory and the rights and re- presentations of minorities in the cultural sphere. Who is our neighbour today? What does hospitality mean for our times? Why is the recognition of others such an agonizing encounter with the alterity of the self? The lecture examplifies how the "Third Space"- one of the key theories of postcolonialism - helps us to establish a new understanding of cosmopolitanism and hospitality in a globalized world, based on the right of difference in equality.
