    African Philosophy, Second Edition: Myth and Reality.Paulin J. Hountondji - 1996 - Indiana University Press.
    "Hountondji... writes not as an 'African' philosopher but as a philosopher on Africa.... Hountondji's deep understanding of any civilization as necessarily pluralistic, and often even self-contradicting as it evolves, is simply magisterial.... This is a precious gem of a book for anyone who wishes to reflect on civilization and culture." —Choice In this incisive, original exploration of the nature and future of African philosophy, Paulin J. Hountondji attacks a myth popularized by ethnophilosophers such as Placide Tempels and Alexis Kagame that (...)

  8. Das Universale konstruieren: Eine transkulturelle Herausforderung.Paulin J. Hountondji - 2020 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 68 (6):899-913.

    How African is Philosophy in Africa?Paulin J. Hountondji - 2018 - Filosofia Theoretica: Journal of African Philosophy, Culture and Religions 7 (3):9-18.
    Let me straight from the beginning confess one thing: I am not happy with the phrase “African Philosophy” used to describe a subject-matter, a specific discipline in the university curriculum. Why? Because it seems to particularize a kind of intellectual production taking place in Africa and to deny its universal validity. It apparently means, to use the words by Jonathan Chimakonam himself, “a bordersensitive, culture-bound exclusive system that holds only in Africa and is not universally applicable” This particularization, however, has (...)
