Interview of Interest: ABC News Radio Interview with Van Norden and Khader

Professor Bryan W. Van Norden of Vassar College and Yale-NUS College and Professor Serene Khader of the CUNY Graduate Center were interviewed by David Rutledge of ABC News Radio (Australia) on the topic “Philosophy in the Wake of Empire: The White Way to Think.” The website with a link to the audio of the interview is here.

During the interview, Professor Van Norden points out that the first Westerners to encounter Chinese and Indian thought immediately recognized it as philosophy.
