Series Editor Monika Kirloskar-Steinbach

Assistant Series Editor Leah Kalmanson

Regional Editors Nader El- Bizri, James Madaio, Sarah Mattice, Takeshi Morisato, Pascah Mungwini, Omar Rivera and Georgina Stewart


Bloomsbury Introductions to World Philosophies delivers primers reflecting exciting new developments in the trajectory of world philosophies. Instead of privileging a single philosophical approach as the basis of comparison, the series provides a platform for diverse philosophical perspectives to accommodate the different dimensions of cross-cultural philosophizing. While introducing thinkers, texts and themes emanating from different world philosophies, each book, in an imaginative and path-breaking way, makes clear how it departs from a conventional treatment of the subject matter. 

Here is a flyer for the first 4 books in the series.
