Summary/Abstract: At the end of 2012 at Al Jazeera, Santiago Zabala published a text about Zizek and the role of the philosopher nowadays. This publication motivated a critical response from the Iranian philosopher Hamid Dabashi, followed by Walter Mignolo’s intervention. Both responses emphasized the pending task of decolonizing knowledge. Returning to the axes of that exchange, H. Dabashi wrote the recently published book Can non-Europeans think? The article presented below is the foreword of the book, written by Walter Mignolo: “Yes, we can”.
