Enrique Dussel is one of the world's foremost Marxist philosophers whose work continues to have a profound impact on liberation theology. Here, the author presents an alternative reading of the history of the political world and the ideas that have inspired their political philosophy. He argues that our current view of the world needs to break free from being too focused on the thought world of Ancient Greece and on Europe. In this work he offers a reading of the political history of the world as an against-story, a story of an anti-traditional tradition.
