Abstract
Often scholars from India and China feel proud of their ancient philosophical tradition, and are sure that they are capable of bringing their own original deposit to the Western philosophy. However, to their deep letdown they find that they are ghettoized and deprived of any connections with the academic community. The only way for them to get included into the academic community is in conforming to the Western philosophy methods applying European or Anglo-American philosophy as a framework for explaining one’s ideas. Thus the philosophy encourages the Eurocentrism. Females and minorities enjoy condescension for the sake of multiculturalism, though and female philosopher as well as any philosopher out of minorities absolutely know that their thoughts should not be treated too seriously otherwise their merits would be called in question.
