Abstract

This considerably revised second edition of 'Philosophy from Africa' presents the current philosophical debate in Africa to a diverse, multicultural world. Its major themes include decolonization, Afro-centrism vs. Euro-centrism, the struggle for cultural freedoms on the continent, and the historic role of Black Consciousness in the African liberation struggle. Writers and thinkers, Steve Biko, Kwasi Wiredu, Abiola Irele, Mogobe Ramose, Ngugi Wa Thiong'o and Wole Soyinka, among others, explore the debates surrounding: restitution and reconciliation in the post-colonial milieu, pressures on the tradition of African philosophy in the modern world, the reconstitution of the African self, the conflict between Western and African epistemological paradigms, justice and globalization, and the continuity of religion and metaphysics in African thought.
