About this book

In the spirit of communitarianism and dialogue between civilizations, this ambitious book seeks a political philosophy where a diversity of world-views can meet. The main objective of the book is to propose a theoretical basis for convergence and to explain how it can be built. After considering key positions in the current debate on political theory, the author offers a theoretical solution to the seeming impossibility of universalizing an ethics of caring and responsibility.

Reviews

"This is a major contribution to social and political theory in the global age. Without being postmodern or anti modern, Sanchez Flores shows how the categories of Western understanding have universalized a particular and limited set of experiences. Rejecting the dogmatic inclusion offered within these categories, she offers a radically new way of thinking about the dilemmas of life together in a common world, one that is open to ways of thinking and being outside the western tradition. It is necessary reading for anyone who wants to engage with the issues of a truly global political philosophy."

- Professor John Holmwood, University of Sussex
