17,31


The question of alterity and intersubjectivity is as old as humanity itself. It is a relevant theme for every culture and for every generation that faces the mystery of the person and seeks adequate answers to the problem of personal existence. Our study aims at penetrating this very fundamental issue. We are convinced that for any integral understanding of the human being, alterity and interpersonal dimensions of our existence must be tak en into account. We are beings who cannot exist in isolation and as they say, no man is an island, and no one has the monopoly of knowledge. In a challenging world like ours, a world where human existence is threat ened by an increasing occurrence of pandemics and dangerous diseases, a world suffocated by unhealthy divisions and competitions, enmity and mistrust, etc., there is a need for individual and collective reflection on how the future of humanity can be safeguarded from a possible extinction. Our world today needs a certain ethics capable of promoting interpersonal re lationships and confront our present crises of coexistence. This book, in its attempt to respond philosophically to this problem gives possible solutions to end these crises.
