9780821419557: Transversal Rationality and Intercultural Texts: Essays in Phenomenology and Comparative Philosophy (Series In Continental Thought)

Winner of the 2012 Edward Goodwin Ballard Prize sponsored by the Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology.

Transversality is the keyword that permeates the spirit of these thirteen essays spanning almost half a century, from 1965 to 2009. The essays are exploratory and experimental in nature and are meant to be a transversal linkage between phenomenology and East Asian philosophy.

Transversality is the concept that dispels all ethnocentrisms, including Eurocentrism. In the globalizing world of multiculturalism, Eurocentric universalism falls far short of being universal but simply parochial at the expense of the non-Western world. Transversality is intercultural, interspecific, interdisciplinary, and intersensorial. Transversal Rationality and Intercultural Texts means to transform the very way of philosophizing itself by infusing or hybridizing multiple traditions in the history of the world.

Like no other scholar, Jung bridges the gap between Asian and Western cultures. What is traditionally called “comparative philosophy” is not just a neglected branch of philosophy; it is poised to radically transform the very conception of philosophy itself.

About the Author:

Hwa Yol Jung is emeritus professor of political science at Moravian College, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. His publications include The Crisis of Political Understanding and Comparative Political Theory and Cross-Cultural Philosophy.  


Review:

He is able to move almost effortlessly across two cultures. I know of no other English-speaking philosopher who has achieved the depth of understanding of Eastern (and specifically Asian) modes of thought.” 
Calvin O. Shrag, George Ade Distinguished Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, Purdue University, and author of The Self After Postmodernity

 

Hwa Yol Jung’s Transversal Rationality and Intercultural Texts is an astonishing collection of essays spanning over forty years of sustained and developed reflection on topics in phenomenological, comparative, and environmental thought by one of the leading voices in these areas. The author’s erudition is nothing short of dazzling. Original, far-reaching, and at times visionary, this work demonstrates philosophical thinking at the highest level. It sets a gold standard to follow for work in the area of comparative cross-cultural philosophy.”
Brian Schroeder, Professor and Chair of Philosophy and Director of Religious Studies at Rochester Institute of Technology

 

This book is an astonishing collection of essays spanning over forty years of sustained and developed reflection on topics in phenomenological, comparative, and environmental thought. The author’s erudition is dazzling. The essays are original, far-reaching, and at times visionary. Like no other, Jung bridges the gaps between Asian and Western culture.”
Center for Advanced Research in Phenomenology, Edward Goodwin Ballard announcement

In these times more than ever before, we are in dire need of recovering our piety towards humanity, other beings and the earth itself. Jung’s book deserves an accolade and acclamation from all those intellectuals and practitioners who are deeply concerned with the fate of humanity and the sustainability of the earth.”
Gibung Kwon, Global Asia
