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. It was only due to the influence of Western imperialism and pseudo-scientific racism that people began to exclude Chinese and Indian philosophy from the curriculum.
