From early sage philosophers to Senghor of Senegal and Biko of South Africa, African thinking has challenged the way we think. As we enter a new millenium, the perspectives provided in this volume offer wise and refreshing alternatives to problems of self and society, culture, aesthetics, metaphysics and religion. Out of Africa always something new, and in these pages contemporary problems of cross-cultural cognition and post-coloniality are not only addressed, but also enacted. The reader witnesses the collision and the coalescence of cultures in the writings of philosophers from Africa. The authors are South African academics involved in the teaching and development of courses in African Philosophy in South Africa, Malawi and Botswana. Most are also associated with the Research Unit for African Philosophy, established at the University of South Africa in 1994, which has initiated programmes and activities that have gained support from African philosophers from all over the continent.
