Dear Student,
Hello and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. There are a host of ways in which this particular question can be answered but since this has a heavy component of multiculturalism, I think it would be best to focus a little on the philosophy and notion of identity. I suggest using the following outline -

1. Globalism and philosophy - how is cultural integration affecting philosophy? 100 words
2. Philosophy of the 'Other' - the creation of identity - 100 words
3. Application of 'the other' in contemporary philosophical thinking, including its relation to Confucian relativism - 100 words

Your answer has to have a practical element as well as an academic element. I am not sure if you are familiar with the notion of 'the other' but this arose from the time of colonialism and best represents the idea of cultural hegemony. If you are not familiar, do not worry - you can use the listed resources to further research on the topic. Good luck with your studies.
