About this book

This book takes stock of the strides made to date in African philosophy. Authors focus on four important aspects of African philosophy: the history, methodological debates, substantive issues in the field, and direction for the future.  By collating this anthology, Edwin E. Etieyibo excavates both current and primordial knowledge in African philosophy, enhancing the development of this growing field.

Reviews

“This is an outstanding and brilliant book; one of the most important collections on African philosophy that has recently been published. The book excellently engages with a number of important themes in philosophy and thereby makes a substantial contribution to the field. The editor, as well as the authors—both prominent and rising scholars in African philosophy—should be commended for bringing together this volume.” (Paulin J. Hountondji, Université Nationale du Bénin, Cotonou, Republic of Benin) “The clarity, depth of analysis, and erudition in this volume addressing both the method and content of that growing body of knowledge known as African philosophy is impressive and commendable. Such an achievement is just one more convincing testimony that African philosophy is philosophy.  Let's hope it will help level the playing field in a way that allows the authentic voices of Africa to be heard and taken seriously in the global arena. Global justice must be anchored in truth and wisdom, both of which are abundantly found in this fine volume.” (Edward Joseph Alam, Notre Dame University-Louaize, Lebanon)
