In the preface to the second edition of the Critique of Pure Reason, Kant proposes a methodological revolution in philosophy similar to the Copernican Revolution: instead of treating the observer as a fixed center around which objects gravitate, it is rather conceived as a mobile whose movements would allow to explain a series of previously inexplicable phenomena. Some contemporary philosophers suggest that such a revolution should also be made from a geographic point of view, since the problems of Philosophy seem to gravitate always around the same fixed center, which is never confronted with the fragility of its contingent geographic position: the European center. The aim of this paper is to reconstruct the general lines of this new Copernican Revolution as a procedure to reevaluate the three main vectors of knowledge: the I, the Other, the Whole.
