« 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.
