Description of This Research Track
The intercultural philosophy track tries to answer the following overarching question:
how can non-western philosophy help us to provide (different and better) answers, to the research questions of ESDiT?
The track on intercultural philosophy is coordinated by prof. Ingrid Robeyns. This track focuses on intercultural ethics. It starts from the insight that truly global challenges need a (cultural) diversity of ethical frameworks to tackle them.
Our activities have been steered by a number of concrete goals:
- Goal 1: Building capacity: most of us are on a steep learning curve, and most of all need to learn about non-western philosophies and intercultural philosophy.
- Goal 2: Building community: within ESDiT and our affiliates, we want to collaborate and co-learn in the area of intercultural philosophy.
- Goal 3: Building/strengthening our international network: we want to gain a better understanding, and get to know, the people working in these fields, in particular those who have also done work on SDTs.
- Goal 4: producing knowledge (and publishing it) that advances the intercultural philosophy perspective within ESDiT.
