    The Question of Immanence in Kwasi Wiredu’s Consensual Democracy.Emmanuel Ifeanyi Ani - 2018 - Cultura 15 (1):161-176.
    Kwasi Wiredu, arguably the most influential African philosopher, has proposed a democracy by consensus as an alternative to the majoritarian democracy African countries inherited from their colonial masters. His proposal has generated a lot of debates, and these debates have spanned several aspects of his proposal. In this paper, I focus on the debate regarding his attribution of immanence to the practice of consensus in traditional African social relations.

    Cultural Crisis as a Decline in Human Existential Creativity.Vaida Asakavičiūtė - 2018 - Cultura 15 (1):65-83.

From this philosophical perspective, it is shown that a human being has, as a natural creative faculty, an innate ability to (...)

    Climate Change Narratives and the Need for Revisioning of Heritage, Knowledge, and Memory.Simon C. Estok - 2018 - Cultura 15 (1):7-21.

In an age when reality television stars become world leaders, the urgency of climate change narratives requires us to understand the crucial roles of memory and heritage to the future of our planet. The sanctity of knowledge simply cannot be abandoned. Knowledge slips away through the cracks, both in mainstream media efforts to sell its news and in the nonchalance of the admittedly more mindful scholars and popularizers of (...)

    The Memory of Tanzimat and How the Malay World Could Have Learned From It.Mohd Faizal Bin Musa - 2018 - Cultura 15 (1):177-193.
    This paper is diagnostic type rather than a solution one. There are claims among certain quarters that The Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 is a Western mould human rights.

Using Syed Hussein Alatas‘s Ideal of Excellence as thereotical framework, my attempt is to highlight the memory of Tanzimat during Ottoman empire as one triumph heritage and successful story of (...)

    The Memory and the Ailing Imagination at Immanuel Kant.Eugenia Zaiţev - 2018 - Cultura 15 (1):115-124.

It is obvious that not anyone suffering from melancholia, nostalgia, hypochondria or any other ailment of the soul, which Immanuel Kant refers to, becomes a creator of culture. Genius is required for this, but instead of diminishing the creative power of the genius, it seems to (...)
