Our study is linked to the theoretical and practical aspirations of the science of tourism, which seeks to map and create accessibility on both the demand side and the service provider side, it also provides a brief insight into the primarily philosophical extension of the concepts of accessibility and disability. Therefore, we intend to outline, without claiming completeness, the contexts of “well-known” concepts, in the light of the referring statements of prominent thinkers in life- and anthropological philosophy as well as Buddhist philosophy, on disability, accessibility, and adaptation, through which participants in the world of travel can look at both the people involved and the services offered from a broader perspective. Our work can create the basis for a new type of adaptive approach in the revision and development of tourism-related professional methods, which can be introduced in the near future.
