Lewis Gordon, professor and head of the Department of Philosophy at UCONN-Storrs, explores five ways in which philosophy, at least as understood in its Euromodern form, is colonized. After showing, through a reflection from an East African philosopher from 4,000 years ago, that philosophy originated as a liberatory project devoted to knowing as a practice of freedom and love in a courageous relationship with reality, he concludes with recommendations for exploring the charge of 21st century philosophy. Cosponsored by the McFarland Center and the Department of Philosophy.
