Fred Dallmayr has put himself at the cusp among Western modernity and an rising international "transmodernity." Rejecting the Westernized secularization of contemporary existence, transmodernity seeks an artificial, novel type of modernity that's really international, anti-Eurocentric and anti-imperialist in its thrust. it truly is this serious and worldwide technique towards modernity that characterizes Dallmayr’s massive corpus. From the earliest moments of a profession spanning over 5 a long time, Dalllmayr’s paintings has rethought a number of the important options of contemporary political philosophy. specially, it has challenged the hegemony of a latest "subjectivity" on the middle of Western liberalism, individualism, and rationalism, thereby clearing an area for substitute voices, claims and ideas. Drawing jointly the various key works of this prolific theorist, the chapters inside of this quantity are selected to focus on essentially the most vital issues explored via Dallmayr, serious phenomenology, cross-cultural concept (or comparative political theory); and cosmopolitanism. Framed via a brand new creation written by Farah Godrej and an interview with Dallmayr commissioned for the quantity, this paintings will offer a necessary source for political theorists and political scientists alike.
