This workshop asks how Western Philosophy should proceed if it takes seriously the challenge of decolonisation and of opening a respectful dialogue with Indigenous philosophies and knowledge systems. It explores ways to improve the plurality of the Philosophy discipline by recognising First Nations perspectives and Indigenous ways of knowing.

  • Krushil Watene (Peter Kraus Associate Professor in Philosophy, University of Auckland)
  • Rob Wilson (Professor in Philosophy, University of Western Australia)
