    White Sugar and Dark Colonialism: Reflections on Girmitiyas and Coolies – Towards a new Paradigm of Reconciliation in Fiji.Pal Ahluwalia - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (2):190-202.
    The presence of Indians fundamentally altered the political, social and economic landscape of sugar producing nations. In most cases, race, which was used as an important signifier of difference by the colonising power, left these states with a colonial legacy of division and derision which they continue to endure and navigate in such diverse locations as the Caribbean, the West Indies, Fiji, Mauritius and parts of Africa. In the quest for recognition, equality and political status that allows the girmitiyas to (...)

    Rubble Walls of Contingency: Language, the Self, and the Mediterranean Imaginary.John Baldacchino - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (2):224-241.
    Though I am not a linguist by trade, writing “of” (rather than “about”) literary philosophy in Maltese with the intent of exploring the interrelationship between the experience of the contingent self, displacement, and the pain of beauty, becomes a linguistic affair. In this paper I explore how doing philosophy in Maltese brings one to engage with disciplines in which one was entirely educated in other languages (in this case, primarily in English and Italian), and how this opens new opportunities that (...)

    The International Political Theory of Dialogue of Civilisations: Philosophical Issues.Fabio Petito - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (2):281-297.
    Starting from a conception of dialogue as “fusion of horizons” inspired by Gadamerian hermeneutics this article aims to give a philosophical foundation to the argument for a dialogue of civilisations within a broad set of theoretical debates that have taken place in the fields of philosophy, political theory, and international relations. Such a discussion contributes to the international political theory of dialogue of civilisations as an argument for the construction of a multicultural peaceful international society against the background of our (...)

    La communauté méditerranéenne comme utopie du dépassement de l’anthropocène?Sébastien Quenot - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (2):242-280.
    Résumé En tant que hotspot de la diversité culturelle et du réchauffement climatique, la Méditerranée apparait particulièrement exposée aux chocs provoqués par l’anthropocène. Sur cette île de la Méditerranée occidentale, l’analyse d’échantillons de discours relatifs à l’imaginaire corse et de mobilisations sociales et d’innovations juridiques relatives à l’écologie peut-elle nous informer quant à l’avènement d’une communauté méditerranéenne susceptible de transformer le rapport des Méditerranéens à la nature et aux vivants humains ou non-humains? Ce travail s’appuie notamment sur les travaux d’Achille (...)

    La notion de soi chez l’alcoolique : altérité et ipséité.Erick Jean-Daniel Singaïny - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (2):299-308.
    Résumé Pour parler vulgairement l’alcoolique a un problème avec le monde et avec l’altérité en raison de sa double figure : il est familier et étrange, toujours ailleurs. Autrement dit, c’est son problème d’identité ou le fait de « rester soi-même » (ipséité) qui est ici questionné car on ne doute pas qu’il est mais on ne sait plus ce qu’il est lorsqu’il boit. Le problème du soi chez l’alcoolique est un problème central lorsque nous envisageons le boire ou l’alcoolisme. (...)

    Le quasi-panpsychisme de Nishida Kitarō à la lumière de Gustav Theodor Fechner.Jacynthe Tremblay - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (2):173-189.
    Résumé Dans son livre Étude sur le bien (1911), Nishida s’inspira de William James, de Gustav Theodor Fechner et d’Ernst Mach pour développer son concept d’expérience pure. Or, il s’avère que ces trois scientifiques professaient ouvertement le panpsychisme, théorie selon laquelle les minéraux, les plantes et les animaux sont vivants et possèdent une nature psychique analogue à celle de l’être humain. Cet article s’attarde surtout aux relations entre Fechner et Nishida, de même qu’à leurs conséquences possibles sur le développement d’un (...)

    Ọ̀rúnmìlà and the Yorùbá Intellectual Tradition: Words and Language vis-à-vis Western Modernity.Saheed Adesumbo Bello - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (1):85-103.
    The essay offers a decolonial reading of the thought of Ọ̀rúnmìlà, the ancient legendary Yorùbá African messenger and interpreter of the spiritual tradition of Ifá with the aim to address the problem of hegemonic languages (such as English and French) and epistemic bias that have affected the Yorùbá intellectual tradition. The essay argues that reflection on the deep history of Yorùbá and the applied philosophy of Ọ̀rúnmìlà can better clarify the problem of language and epistemic injustices that European modernity has (...)

    Le thé'tre de Jean-Luc Lagarce : Le triomphe littéraire de la communication « en faillite ».Alina Kornienko - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (1):68-84.
    Résumé Le théâtre contemporain voit se détacher progressivement la représentation théâtrale du texte dramatique et se tourner vers les multiples incarnations d’un « théâtre du langage ». Jean-Luc Lagarce est un des meilleurs représentants de ce genre de théâtre en France à la fin du XXème siècle. Le dialogue théâtral – l’ensemble des répliques qu’échangent les personnages – tend à être de plus en plus brouillé, rompu, allant jusqu’à franchir les frontières qui séparent traditionnellement d’autres formes discursives, comme le monologue (...)

    Cross-Tradition Philosophical Engagement and Cross-Culture Dialogue: From a Holistic Vantage Point with Enhanced Explanatory Resources.Bo Mou - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (1):122-149.
    Especially since the beginning of this century, the significance and value of comparative philosophy as a general way of doing philosophy through cross-tradition engagement toward world philosophy has been recognized and strengthened through both theoretic exploration and reflective practice. The purpose of this essay is to explain how, from a holistic vantage point, cross-tradition philosophical engagement as a methodological approach can contribute to those truth-concern-sensitive (or critical-engagement-sensitive) studies in cross-cultural dialogue with enhanced “constructive-engagement” resources. For this purpose, with a further (...)

    A Feminist Analysis of “Woman-Husband” and “Male-Daughter” Practice in Igbo Cultural Thought.Ucheoma C. Osuji - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (1):104-121.
    This essay examines how conceptions of “woman-husband” and “male-daughter” are supported and practiced in Igbo traditional thought. The essay argues from a feminist perspective that the practice not only promotes patriarchy but also solicits the aid and involvement of women to develop a female subjectivity that fits in with a society that privileges the male. The practice deepens the problem it tries to solve by causing existential predicament, discrimination and stigmatization to women victims and their offspring. The practice also alienates (...)

    Practising Diversity in Education: In Dialogue with Dōgen and bell hooks.Chiara Robbiano - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (1):5-40.
    This essay argues that diversity needs to be practised. Drawing insights from two thinkers who saw themselves as educators, Dōgen and bell hooks, I single out three steps towards practising diversity in a learning community. I make two concrete recommendations for each step. Step One involves trying to understand the other in their own terms, by becoming informed about the frameworks that play a role in their experience. Step Two guides us to listen to every unique other and receive their (...)

    Human Dignity and Renunciation of Force in Islamic and Indian Education: A Perspective of the Intercultural Human Rights Education.Thomas Sukopp - 2023 - Culture and Dialogue 11 (1):41-67.
    Migration and diversity are important factors in education of teachers around the globe. From an intercultural perspective, we shall analyse how metaphysical and religious assumptions overlap and enable teachers to motivate pupils from different religious-cultural backgrounds to understand in greater detail the facets of (minimal) universalism, relativism and other concepts that obtain in more or less open societies. We argue for a concept of Intercultural Human Rights Education that uses different texts in philosophy classes, includes controversial positions from different cultures, (...)
