Call for a global history of ideas

«Global History of Ideas: A Sea for Fish on Dry Land»: That’s the
title of Dag Herbjørnsrud’s new text at the blog of the Journal of the History of Ideas, published on February 15, 2017.

Intro: «A remarkable example of how ideas migrate across so-called cultural borders and change minds in unknown ways happened in the German city of Bremen on October 8, 1930. There, Martin Heidegger gave a speech based upon his masterwork Being and Time (1927). Afterwards, he and several of Bremen’s citizens gathered at the home of a wholesaler. During the evening, Heidegger suddenly turned to his host and asked, “Mister Kellner, would you please bring me the Parables of Zhuangzi? I would like to read some passages from it.”
