14th Annual International Conference on Philosophy, 27-30 May 2019, Athens, Greece
|Decolonisation & Desuperiorisation: On the Dangers of Western Thought|
Stream Leader: Dr. Bjorn Freter, Independent Researcher, Germany.
In this panel we want to stimulate the discussion that Western thought must understand that its central task must be its desuperiorisation. Desuperiorisation has to be the part of the process of decolonisation form the West. We are looking for contributions that help to stimulate this discussion, either by working on some of the named questions, by presenting examples how non-western thinking handles the western superiorism, by showing how to practice desuperiorisation e.g. in educational, academic or social environments of different kinds. Of course, other contributions vital to these fields of research are also most welcome. You may participate as presenter of one paper or as an observer.
