Ethics of Liberation: In the Age of Globalization and Exclusion by Enrique DusselThis much anticipated translation of Enrique Dussels Ethics of Liberation makes a milestone in ethical discourse by one of the worlds foremost philosophers available in English for the first time. Dussel is a founder of the philosophy of liberation. This treatise, his masterwork, is its cornerstone. Originally published in 1998, it is a massive attempt to develop a planetary vision of human ethics and experience.Throughout his career, Dussel has sought to open a space for articulating new possibilities for humanity out of, and in light of, the suffering, dignity, and creative drive of those who have been excluded from Western modernity and neoliberal rationalism. Grounded in engagement with the oppressed, his thinking has figured prominently in philosophy, political theory, and liberation movements around the world.
In Ethics of Liberation Dussel provides a comprehensive world history of ethics, demonstrating that our most fundamental moral and ethical traditions did not emerge in ancient Greece and develop through modern European and North American thought. The obscured and ignored origins of modernity lie outside the Western tradition. Ethics of Liberation is a monumental rethinking of the history, origins, and aims of ethics, and the critical orientation of ethical theory.
Enrique Dussel teaches philosophy at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Iztapalapa, and at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in Mexico City. He is the author of many books, including Beyond Philosophy: Ethics, History, Marxism, and Liberation Theology and The Invention of the Americas: Eclipse of the “Other” and the Myth of Modernity. His books Twenty Theses on Politics and Coloniality at Large: Latin America and the Postcolonial Debate (coedited with Mabel Moraña and Carlos A. Jáuregui) are both also published by Duke University Press.
Enrique Dussel is the towering figure in liberation philosophy. This long-awaited translation confirms his unique position in contemporary philosophy.—Cornel West
The most significant achievements of Enrique Dussels Ethics of Liberation are the ways that it shifted the geography of reasoning and taught us that if ethics is universal, it is also geopolitical. Dussel shows clearly that ethics has a politics that demands the political to be ethical and the ethical to be political. He further demonstrates that the geopolitics of ethics can no longer be controlled and regulated by Eurocentrism. Epistemic, political, economic, and ethical arguments and advocacy are being built from within the Third World and they have a global scope. Ethics of Liberation is a book for our time, an essential tool for building nonimperial ethical futures.—Walter D. Mignolo, author of The Darker Side of Western Modernity: Global Futures, Decolonial Options

Whether one agrees with Dussel's position or not, the ideas presented in Ethics of Liberation are important, as they propose an alternative model to neoliberalism. The editor and the translators of the text have done a magisterial job of bringing this seminal work by a major world philosopher to the attention of an English-language reading public. It is sweepingly comprehensive, a tsunami of thought. Dussel, a philosophy professor in Mexico City, ducks none of the major issues and none of the intellectual figures of the West as he develops his thought about liberation. Few people have thought harder on these themes than Dussel and Ethics of Liberation synthesizes much of this intellectual trajectory, opening future lines of research explored in the two-volume Politics of Liberation , and in other works. This is an overdue English translation of a major work from one of the most important philosophers of our time. Dussel shows clearly that ethics has a politics that demands the political to be ethical and the ethical to be political.

Ethics of Liberation in many respects culminates a project begun in the s with the still untranslated five volume For an Ethics of Latin American Liberation Dussel attempts to provide theoretical tools to replace Hellenocentrism ontological Eurocentrism with a global philosophy that prioritizes the victims of neoliberal capitalism and European hegemony. Ethics of Liberation emerges from the shadow of the Argentinian junta and the Dirty Wars. It is an ethics of the hungry and the unemployed, addressed to families of the disappeared and to refugees fleeing state-sponsored terrorism and environmental degradation.
