Summary
"Organized topically rather than historically, this book provides an introduction to the subject of African philosophy, Samuel Oluoch Imbo synthesizes the ideas of key African philosophers into an accessible narrative. The author focuses on five central questions: What are the definitions of African philosophy? Is ethnophilosophy really philosophy? What are the dangers of an African philosophy that claims to be "unique"? Can African philosophy be done in foreign languages such as English and French? Are there useful ways to make connections between African philosophy, African American philosophy, and women's studies?"--Jacket
