Exploring Humanity: Intercultural Perspectives on Humanism

Front Cover
Mihai Spariosu, Jörn Rüsen
V&R unipress GmbH, 2012 - Philosophy - 295 pages
The old humanistic model, aiming at universalism, ecumenism, and the globalization of various Western systems of values and beliefs, is no longer adequate â even if it pleads for an ever-wider inclusion of other cultural perspectives and for intercultural dialogue.In contrast, it would be wise to retain a number of its assumptions and practices â which it incidentally shares with humanistic models outside the Western world. We must now reconsider and remap it in terms of a larger, global reference frame. This anthology does just that, thus contributing to a new field of study and practice that could be called "intercultural humanism".
