A Matter of Discourse: Community and Communication in Contemporary PhilosophiesSIAS Faculty Book Gallery
DescriptionThe emphasis upon difference, plurality and multiculturalism has led to an outpouring of information that has been interpreted by theories such as pragmatism, communitarianism, feminism, postmodern discourse and liberation ethics. Having the conception of communication in discourse theory as point of departure, scholars of distinct philosophical backgrounds move in and out of different contexts to offer a first-hand and in-depth account of the above positions in their dialogue with discourse theory, by establishing a web. This book seeks to show that pluralism and multiculturalism are to be found with philosophy itself.
