University of Santiago, Chile
As its title suggests, this article suggests that universities should be transformed, and that they should be transformed by learning from modernity’s ‘other’. Every single word in the title and in this first sentence requires elaboration to explain how we1 use them and what we mean by them. It should be said at the outset that the decision to make ‘other’ singular instead of plural does not rest on a belief that modernity has only one other and that other is known. On the contrary, what is ‘other’ to modernity is varied, plural, and to a large extent unknown.
