Traces the roots of logos in different cultural milieux.
In Meditations of Global First Philosophy, Ashok K. Gangadean builds on decades of research on the emergence of global reason to trace the roots of logos in different cultural milieux. Gangadean crosses into the uncharted frontier of global consciousness, global wisdom, and global first philosophy to illustrate that there is a primal force—a global logos—that is the generative source of our diverse worldviews, cultures, religions, philosophies, perspectives, and disciplinary orientations.
Ashok K. Gangadean is Professor and Chair of Philosophy at Haverford College and the Founder and Director of the Global Dialogue Institute. He is the author of Between Worlds: The Emergence of Global Reason and Meditative Reason: Toward Universal Grammar.
"The author has the courage and commitment to take on an issue of tremendous philosophical importance, despite the fact that postmodernism has not only made the topic unfashionable, but branded it morally repugnant as well. " — Douglas W. Shrader, coauthor of Pathways to Philosophy: A Multidisciplinary Approach
