Recognition and equality is the core of the multiculturalism. As is known to us, the multiculturalism contains many different cultures due to the different geography environments and different lifestyles. We should to commit other’s cultural value from the other countries. Just like a lot of the country has the religion beliefs, such as the India, we should respect their beliefs, though maybe we have the different beliefs. We should also be equal to them as well as their beliefs. In Kant's moral philosophy (1785), the categorical imperative formulates the equality postulate of universal human worth. His transcendental and philosophical reflections on autonomy and self-legislation lead to a recognition of the same freedom for all rational beings as the sole principle of human rights (Kant 1797, p. 230). Such Enlightenment ideas stimulated the great modern social movements and revolutions, and were taken up in modern constitutions and declarations of human rights. During the French Revolution, equality — along with freedom and fraternity — became a basis of the Déclaration des droits de l´homme et du citoyen of 1789. The same to the culture, every country own its unique culture, it is very valuable. So it is very important for the foreigners to recognition its value and respect its unique and specific culture. 1.
