“Practicing ubuntu”

Dernier article de Olusegun Samuel, intitulé “Practicing ubuntu” paru dans The Philosophical Forum.


This paper discusses one particular way we may put the idea of sharing in ubuntu philosophy into practice: moderate selflessness. Moderate selflessness is an important tool that might help us pursue other-regarding behaviour alongside the agent’s genuine well-being interests to help disrupt the antagonistic gap between humanity and nonhumanity. I suggest that, properly understood, moderate selflessness may provide conceptual resources to avoid antagonistic environmental practices, including the concerns of poverty and biodiversity loss.
