In a globalised world the intercultural dialogue and the interaction – different from integration - among different peoples and cultures is more and more necessary. The article deals with the issue of interculturality, considered an intelligence to live together in the diversity. The intelligence to do it is found on the basis of an approach to the processes of integration of Latin American countries that must be based on mutual dialogue, learning and enrichment, in order to promote the human development by mechanisms of intercultural communication – able to lead to the valorisation of their own things– and by the relation with the different, understood as bioethical, intercultural and prudential fundaments. The article analyzes the Latin-American thought on the matter, so addressing problems relevant for all the world and for the Mediterranean basin in particular.
