The Keywords Series is based on a simple yet unique idea. It brings together scholars from six regions of the world representing different disciplines, each of whom explores the meanings and nuances of certain universal concepts writing from their own socio-cultural specificities and historical settings. These books, therefore, present the diversity of cultural traditions in an era characterized by the homogenizing effects of globalization.
The Series currently comprises four books dealing respectively with Truth, Gender, Identity and Experience. Each of these concepts is widely used in daily discourse but most of us are unclear about their philosophical and cultural roots; and we are even more unaware of how these same key concepts are viewed in other societies.
Designed, therefore, to foster an inter-cultural dialogue, these absorbing books present multiple understandings of concepts that are key to our understanding of the human condition. In short, they are required reading for all those who see themselves as informed citizens of the world.
