    Adeshina Afolayan (2012). Humanities and the Dilemma of African Modernity. Philosophia 41 (2).
    This essay tries to place the humanities in Africa squarely within the process of articulating an “agonistic imaginary” that is crucial in creating an African modernity. The humanities, in spite of the growing crisis in African university curricula , could and should serve as an intellectual catalyst towards the creation of a pedagogical atmosphere. Such an atmosphere is necessary for conceptualising an imaginary around which an African modern existence can emerge. In the words of Aloni , a humanistic education will (...)

    Abiodun Balogun (2012). Authentic Motherhood: Traditional Yoruba-African Perspective. Philosophia 41 (2).
    The paper discusses the notion of authentic motherhood within the frame work of the traditional Yoruba-African society. It argues that an authentic mother, according to the traditional Yoruba-African understanding, is one who performs all her responsibilities as stipulated by the norms and precepts of society. It also points out that the responsibilities of an authentic mother are holistic in nature and when wholesomely fulfilled, have prudential, egoistic, and utilitarian justifications. The paper further provides a philosophical comparison of motherhood in Yoruba-African (...)

    Pedro Tabensky (2008). The Postcolonial Heart of South African Philosophy. South African Journal of Philosophy 27 (4):285-295.
    This piece is one of among a handful that seek in the first instance to reveal the origin of African philosophy as an academic discipline, the source of its unity and distinctiveness. The discipline of African philosophy originates in tragedy, out of pain, confusion and rage stemming from colonial destruction; destruction that is responsible for what Fanon calls the ‘negro neurosis’ caused by what Biko would describe as the unbearable fusion of colonised and coloniser. I argue that the birth of (...)

    Amaechi Udefi (2007). A Critique Of The Analytic Trend In African Philosophy. Philosophia 36 (2).
    In the discourse of African philosophy, what may still seem unresolved is the question of the content and methodological approach appropriate for its study. Two apparently opposing camps are isolable here, namely, traditionalist or ethnophilosophical school and the Universalist or analytic school. The latter is criticized and rejected in this essay because it adopts a methodological approach characteristic of Western analytic philosophy which itself has come under severe criticism by the post empiricist philosophers and postmodernist thinkers. We argue that the (...)

    Marguerite Clark as Topsy in Uncle Tom’s Cabin . Charlton Heston as Ramon Miguel Vargas in Touch of Evil . Mizuo Peck as Sacagawea in Night at the Museum . From the early days of cinema to its classic-era through to the contemporary Hollywood age, the history of cinema is replete with films in which the racial background of a principal character does not match the background of the actor or actress portraying that character. I call this actor-character race-mismatching. In (...)

    Donna-Dale L. Marcano (2004). Sartre and the Social Construction of Race. Dissertation, The University of Memphis
    The predominant conception of the status of race is that race is a social construction. But what does it mean to say that a group, racially defined, is a social construct? How we understand the process of constitution and related identities is important beyond the conceptual reality or non-reality that defines the group. To this end, this dissertation explores two models of group constitution employed by Jean-Paul Sartre, the first from Anti-Semite and Jew, which bases group constitution and identity on (...)
