Intercultural Modes of Philosophy, Volume One
Principles to Guide Philosophical Community
Series: Philosophy as a Way of Life, Volume: 01
Author: Eli Kramer
Until rather recently, philosophy, when practiced as a way of life, was, for most, a communal enterprise of mutually reinforced personal cultivation. In these times of social isolation, including in academic philosophy itself, it is time, yet again, to revitalize this lost, but vital, intercultural mode of philosophy. This volume characterizes a neglected communal mode of philosophy — the philosophical community — by describing the constellation of metaethical principles (general, axiological, cultural, and dialectical) that cultivates its values. The book draws on examples from across the globe and history, including interviews of adherents of living philosophical communities.
Eli Kramer is an assistant professor at the Department of Ethics of the Institute of Philosophy, University of Wrocław. He has a PhD in philosophy (5/12/2018) from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
