Summary

This much anticipated translation of Enrique Dussel's Ethics of Liberationmakes a milestone in ethical discourse by one of the world's foremost philosophers available in English for the first time. Dussel is a founder of the philosophy of liberation. This treatise, his masterwork, is its cornerstone. Originally published in 1998, it is a massive attempt to develop a planetary vision of human ethics and experience. Throughout his career, Dussel has sought to open a space for articulating new possibilities for humanity out of, and in light of, the suffering, dignity, and creative drive of those who have been excluded from Western modernity and neoliberal rationalism. Grounded in engagement with the oppressed, his thinking has figured prominently in philosophy, political theory, and liberation movements around the world. In Ethics of LiberationDussel provides a comprehensive world history of ethics, demonstrating that our most fundamental moral and ethical traditions did not emerge in ancient Greece and develop through modern European and North American thought. The obscured and ignored origins of modernity lie outside the Western tradition. Ethics of Liberationis a monumental rethinking of the history, origins, and aims of ethics, and the critical orientation of ethical theory.
