This part of the book examines globalization and how it continues to transform philosophy. Non-Western philosophical communities are becoming more prominent in the global philosophical sphere, and the problems non-Western philosophers analyse, the solutions they put forward, and the ideas they inject into world philosophy are coming to center stage. This part of the book outlines the analysis to follow, which illustrates a number of aspects of globalization, such as global feminism, Native American philosophy, environmental philosophy, cosmopolitanism, and the theory of reparations.
