In this talk for Chester Humanists, philosopher Julian Baggini will seek to expand or sometimes overly 'Western'–centric understanding of philosophical thought. The talk offers a wide-ranging map of human thinking, exploring the philosophies of Japan, India, China and the Muslim world, as well as the lesser known oral traditions of Africa and Australia’s first peoples.
The talk and accompanying book offer deep insights into how different regions operate, their commonalities as well as their differences.
Julian Baggini will show that gaining greater knowledge of how others think is the first step to a better understanding of ourselves.
Julian is editor-in-chief and co-founder of The Philosophers’ Magazine. He is the author of several books on philosophy including How the World Thinks: A Global History of Philosophy and, most recently, The Godless Gospel – Was Jesus a Great Moral Teacher?. You can read more at Julian’s website.
