    In the last two decades the idea of African Philosophy has undergone significant change and scrutiny.

In African Philosophy Lee Brown has collected new essays by top scholars in the field that in various ways respond to these criticisms and defend the notion of African Philosophy. The essays address both epistemological and metaphysical issues that are specific to the traditional conceptual languages (...)

  4. Thaddeus Metz (2012). Developing African Political Philosophy: Moral-Theoretic Strategies. Philosophia Africana 14 (1):61-83.score: 30.0
    If contemporary African political philosophy is going to develop substantially in fresh directions, it probably will not be enough, say, to rehash the old personhood debate between Kwame Gyekye and Ifeanyi Menkiti, or to nit-pick at Gyekye’s system, as much of the literature in the field has done.

  5. B. Matolino (2009). Radicals Versus Moderates: A Critique of Gyekye's Moderate Communitarianism. South African Journal of Philosophy 28 (2).score: 30.0
    The communitarian conception of person is a widely accepted view in African thought. Kwame Gyekye thinks there is a distinction between what he calls radical communitarianism and his own version of moderate communitarianism. He is of the view that radical communitarianism is faced with insurmountable problems and ought to be jettisoned in favour of his moderate communitarianism. Gyekye’s strategy is twofold; he firstly seeks to show the shortcomings of radical communitarianism – particularly by attacking Ifeanyi Menkiti’s position. Secondly, (...)

  8. Sylvanus Ifeanyi Nnoruka (2003). Judgement in African Thought. Philosophy in the Contemporary World 10 (2):51-61.score: 3.0
    Critical thinking plays a role in African judgement. Here, factors that influence judgement are: culture, communalism, wisdom of elders, revelation from the gods, and observation. Factors that obstruct judgement include: colonialism, modernization, and new religions. However, thanks to Kant's critical philosophy, only objectively valid knowledge is actually knowledge in African traditional thought.
