In defense of afro-japanese ethnophilosophy

Philosophy East and West 47 (3):363-381 (1997)
Abstract
Ethnophilosophy is so called because its focus is on the thought that underlies the life patterns and belief system of a people. It is folk philosophy insofar as it is an exposition of the philosophical thought undergirding the way of life of a people as a collectivity. African and Japanese philosophy belong to this tradition. Western philosophy, however, is based on reason and logic; in contrast with ethnophilosophy, it developed ab initio as a critique of folk thought and worldviews. Both traditions are not contradictory but complementary. Each bears the marks of its peculiar culture and history
