Thinking from the Underside of History: Enrique Dussel's Philosophy of Liberation

Front Cover
Linda Alcoff, Eduardo Mendieta
Rowman & Littlefield, 2000 - Philosophy - 300 pages
Enrique Dussel's writings span the theology of liberation, critiques of discourse ethics, evaluations of Marx, Levinas, Habermas, and others, but most importantly, the development of a philosophy written from the underside of Eurocentric modernist teleologies, an ethics of the impoverished, and the articulation of a unique Latin American theoretical perspective. This anthology of original articles by U.S. philosophers elucidating Dussel's thought, offers critical analyses from a variety of perspectives, including feminist ones. Also included is an essay by Dussel that responds to these essays.
