Summary

Human liberation has become an epochal challenge in today's world, requiring not only emancipation from oppressive structures but also from the oppressive self. It is a multidimensional struggle and aspiration in which knowledge - self, social and spiritual - can play a transformative role. 'Knowledge and Human Liberation: Towards Planetary Realizations' undertakes such a journey of transformation, and seeks to rethink knowledge vis--vis the familiar themes of human interest, critical theory, enlightenment, ethnography, democracy, pluralism, rationality, secularism and cosmopolitanism. The volume also features a Foreword by John Clammer (United Nations University, Tokyo) and an Afterword by Fred Dallmayr (University of Notre Dame).
