Stephanus Djunatan has recently accomplished his postgraduate study on Sundanese Philosophy. His doctoral thesis, which is entitled ‘The Principle of Affirmation: An Ontological and Epistemological Ground of Interculturality’, has been presented in a public defense at Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on Thursday, 10 February 2011. It is based on his research —which was facilitated by Parahyangan Catholic University, Bandung, Erasmus University Rotterdam, and the Ministry of National Education of the Republic of Indonesia— into the Sundanese traditional worldview in the contemplative side of Nagara Padang, Bandung, West Java.

Djunatan was born in Cirebon, West Java, on 24 December 1970. He teaches Philosophy at Parahyangan Catholic University.
