Comparative Philosophy and I

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateResearch

    Abstract

    The paper narrates the author’s becoming as a comparative philosopher. Elaborating a series of intellectual crises, aporia which the comparative
    philosopher thought her way out of, the paper develops the claim that as simultaneously »I« in the flesh and »I« in the text, the comparative philosopher is singular. The claim opposes the orthodoxy of philosophical biography and autobiography, which asserts the figure as a duality. This is significant when it comes to considering the knowledge practices of comparative philosophy and its truth claims.
