About this topic
Summary African philosophy today is a dynamic and original discipline. Philosophers in the African context address such issues as the methodologies best suited to the study of Africa's indigenous intellectual and cultural heritages, how philosophy can contribute to the understanding and solution of contemporary African social and political concerns, as well as core issues and problems of international academic philosophy.

    This paper undertakes a philosophical investigation of the implications of the traditional Yoruba understanding of education for the contemporary African quest for development. The paper argues that the Yoruba conception of education is marked bythe underlying philosophical principles of functionalism, moralism and progressivism. These principles, the paper contends, are of great relevance to the quest of contemporary African societies for education that will serve as a catalyst for development.

    Placide Tempels’ Bantu Philosophy has largely been met with hostility from African philosophers. Whilst Tempels intended to show that the Bantu were not only capable of thinking, but also that they had a distinct and coherent philosophy of their own, his project seems to have achieved exactly the opposite. Temples’ project sought to expose the racism of thinkers such as Lucien Levy-Bruhl, thereby raising the African to the same status as the Westerner. However, his efforts have been rejected for a (...)

    There is no doubt that Africa today is confronted with many economic, political, social, and developmental problems.

This paper attempts to elucidate a fundamental role that philosophy can play in this regard. It holds that philosophy, as a discipline in the humanities, can help shape fresh ideas that are humanistic in nature in the (...)
