    In African speculative fiction, there can be found examples of texts that touch on (neo)colonial displacement, uprootedness, and alienation. Through evoking the familiar Other—the nonhuman animal, the hybrid, or even the monster—these texts both portray an (ongoing) shared trauma and express a quiet refusal of narratives of separation and hierarchy. Here I examine how this “uneasy” kinship is critically embraced and operates in the short story “When the Levees Break” by Edwin Okolo (2022). Second, I explore David Uzochukwu’s “black merfolk” (...)

  4. Beauty in African thought: critical perspectives on the Western idea of development.Bolaji Bateye, Mahmoud Masaeli, Louise F. Müller & Angela Roothaan (eds.) - 2023 - Lanham, Maryland: Lexington Books.
    'Beauty in African Thought: A Critique of the Western Idea of Development' won the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title of the Year 2023 as mentioned on the Rowman and Littlefield webpage. The book investigates how the concept of beauty in African philosophy and related qualitative social sciences may contribute to a richer intercultural exchange on the idea of development. While working within frameworks created in post-colonial and arguably neo-colonial times, African thinkers have reacted against the mainstream view that restricts the meaning (...)

    Beauty in African Thought: A Critique of the Western Idea of Development investigates how the concept of beauty in African philosophy and related qualitative social sciences may contribute to a richer intercultural exchange on the idea of development. While working within frameworks created in post-colonial and arguably neo-colonial times, African thinkers have reacted against the mainstream view that restricts the meaning and scope of good development to economic growth and western-style education.

    Whether classical or contemporary, the arts of the African continent have always been defined, often negatively, by Western categories. After identifying the different appellations of the arts in Black Africa, the controversies and misunderstandings in the debates on their semantic connotations and mutations, this article argues that the Western perspective that claims the right to define African art must be reconsidered from the sole point of view of Africa.

    To colonise the African continent and later on expand its domination upon the rest of the world, Europe has denied history and by so doing history of art to Africa. This denial has infiltrated into all the fields of Euro-African relations and to some extent all human endeavors along the centuries.Standing from a decolonial point of view, this paper aims at questioning the art historical discourse on Africa so as to show how African art history moved from colonialist discourse to (...)

  10. The African Novel and the Question of Communalism in African Philosophy (Roundtable on Jeanne-Marie Jackson's "The African Novel of Ideas").Zeyad El Nabolsy - 2023 - Safundi 24.
    Jeanne-Marie Jackson’s The African Novel of Ideas: Philosophy and Individualism in the Age of Global Writing provides an analytic framework for understanding the novel as a form of philosophical expression in African intellectual history. More specifically, she uses individualism as a tool for tracking the expression of abstract “philosophical thinking” in a selection of African novels. For Jackson, it is the fictional individual in the novel who is the primary bearer of philosophical thought. Jackson situates this interpretative heuristic vis-à-vis the (...)

  12. World, Class, Tragicomedy: Johannesburg, 1994.Liam Kruger - 2023 - College Literature 50 (2-3):349-382.
    Marlene van Niekerk's 1994 Triomf is a plaasroman, or farm novel, without the farm; it formally resembles a nostalgic pastoral genre initiated by the collapse of Southern African agricultural economy around the time of the Great Depression, but removes even the symbol of the farm as aesthetic compensation for material loss. In the process, van Niekerk composes a post-apartheid tragicomedy of a lumpenproletariat white supremacist family coming into long-belated class consciousness, an epiphany which, surprisingly, survives the novel's translations from Afrikaans (...)

    This paper delves into the intersection of Kantian aesthetics and African social order, highlighting the intriguing tension between these two seemingly distinct philosophical realms. Immanuel Kant's aesthetic theory, primarily articulated in his “Critique of Judgment”, has long been regarded as a cornerstone of Western philosophical thought, emphasizing the universality of aesthetic judgments and the autonomy of the individual. Conversely, African social order is deeply rooted in communalism, emphasizing the interconnectedness of individuals within a community and the importance of shared values (...)

    This article traces the emergence of East African Asian writings and their struggle with questions of national belonging and diaspora. It argues that although this emergence was part and parcel of the literary developments that were taking place in the East Africa region in the 1960s, these writings would later distinguish themselves as texts that are not only framed by the ambivalent and diasporic histories of Indians in imperial and postcolonial East Africa but also as writings that consciously construct ambivalent (...)

Many of the stories in this bundle provide an explanation for the appearance of the most remarkable Ghanaian animals. For example, why does the parrot have such beautiful feathers?

    Recent studies on colonial discourse have demonstrated that the speeches of freedom activists in colonial Africa served as sites of resistance. One key text type that has, however, been neglected in the critical literature on the discourse of emancipation is the national anthem of colonised states. To fill this gap, the present study examines the discursive enactment of resistance in the anthems of former British colonies in Africa, focusing on the transitivity framework in systemic functional linguistics. Semantic and structural parallelisms (...)

  24. Moments of realization: extending Homeworld in British-African Novelist Doris Lessing’s Four-Gated City.David Seamon - 2022 - Continental Philosophy Review 55 (4):519-535.
    For Husserl, the _homeworld_ is the tacit, taken-for-granted sphere of experiences, understanding, and situations marking out a world that is comfortable, usual, and “the way things are and should be.” Always, according to Husserl, the homeworld is in some mode of lived mutuality with an _alienworld_—a world as seen as a realm of difference, atypicality, and otherness. In this article, I draw on British-African novelist Doris Lessing’s 1969 novel, _The Four-Gated City_, to consider the shifting homeworld of protagonist Martha Quest, (...)

    The chapter challenges the aesthetic imprints of Vlisco, a Dutch firm, whose representation of Africa’s image in its textile products and fabrics exported to Africa over many decades left much to be desired. The artistic contents of the products, mainly an amalgam of Javanese, Indian, Chinese, Arab and European cultural imageries, are branded as “African prints”. The chapter considered several arguments for and against Vlisco’s “African prints,” as well as the objection for a global understanding of textile and their aesthetic (...)

    This book argues for a radical new approach to thinking about art and creativity in Africa, challenging outdated normative discourses about Africa's creative heritage. Africanism, which is driven by a traumatic response to colonialism in Africa, has an almost unshakable stranglehold on the content, stylistics, and meaning of art in Africa. Post-African aesthetics insists on the need to move beyond this counter-colonial self-consciousness and considerably change, re-work and enlarge the ground, principles and mission of artistic imagination and creativity in Africa.

    There is a contention on whether African architecture actually exists especially in relation to possessing a distinct identity. Also, African architecture is rarely discussed within mainstream contemporary theoretical debates in Architecture except with respect to influences on arts, artists and architecture in the developed world and generally speaking architecture of the past. This chapter reviews the different perspectives and conceptualisations on African architecture and its global influences. Furthermore the sources of and obstacles to identity formation in African architecture were reviewed (...)

Afrofuturism was coined in the 1990s as a means of exploring the intersection of African diaspora culture with technology, science and science fiction. However, this book argues that literature and other arts within Africa has always reflected on themes of futurism, across diverse forms of speculative writing, images, spirituality, myth, magical realism, the supernatural, performance and other forms of oral resources.

    The discussions on the relation between philosophy and movies are not quite popular because of the generally believed idea that they front different methods in their presentation of reality. While the movies present ideas in the form of appearance and actions, philosophy presents ideas through a method of reflective analysis and debate. Notwithstanding the differences in method, this paper takes the view that movies often present, in the most distinct and clearer ways, a people's culture and philosophy, even to the (...)

    I articulate an African view of personhood that combines beauty and goodness–aesthetic and moral features. I discuss the idea of communalism, which provides the social and moral values and belief system that give meaning to this view of personhood. I use ideas from some African ethnic traditions, or some people’s account of these traditions, as examples to illustrate this view. The similarities in these examples from different ethnic traditions indicate that it is reasonable to characterize this view as a common (...)

In African Art as Philosophy , Souleymane Bachir Diagne takes a unique approach to reading Senghor’s influential works, taking as the starting point for his analysis Henri Bergson’s idea that in order to understand philosophers one must find the initial intuition from which every aspect of their work develops. In the case of Senghor, Diagne argues that his (...)

    Following in the footsteps of Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart, the tenor of the postcolonial African culture has been justifiably anti-imperialist. In the 21st century, however, there has been a gradual but certain shift away from the “write-back” discourse paradigm, towards more integrative, globally inflected cultural interpretive models in Africa. This book celebrates the emergence of new interpretive paradigms such as in African philosophy, gender studies and literature.
