Transregional Studies at Göttingen: Guest Lecture: Sustainability and the Crisis of Transcendence: The Long View from Asia
22. Juni 2016, 18:00
Public Lecture by Prof. Dr. Prasenjit Duara
The rise of Asia and China in particular has been accompanied by the need to project a new, more just vision of the world that is not simply a new hegemony. Many Chinese intellectuals have sought to find inspiration in their historical and transcendent universalisms such as ‘all-under-heaven’ (tianxia). The paper is an effort to think through
the conceptual and political framework for understanding transcendence in post-Western modernity. Historically, universalisms have been the source of ideals, principles and ethics. Modern universalisms – developed from Kant to Marx – are apparently in retreat, yielding to nationalism and consumerism.
