Editorial Reviews

Review

"This collection is destined to become the classic guide to the distinctive issues of concern to African philosophers today and in the past. The essays also reveal critical challenges African philosophies raise for ‘exceptionalist’ and ‘triumphalist’ tendencies in Western philosophy. This is a lively and intriguing text for undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars in many disciplines." Sandra Harding, University of California, Los Angeles


"Professor Wiredu has brought together the leading scholars of African philosophy, and provided us with up-to-date assessments of such vital topics as the history of African philosophy, African philosophy and postcolonial studies, and the relationship between world view and critical thinking. This is a balanced and judicious collection that exposes the student to all the major issues and schools." Ivan Karp, Emory University


"The extensive bibliography confirms the existence of African philosophy and supports the argument for its rightful place alongside other philosophies. . . The essays in this book are informative and compelling. The book is a product of commendable effort and provides its readers with much enlightenment." African Studies Review

“…this Companion goes beyond evaluating African philosophy spoken, written, sung, danced, sculpted, or painted prior to itself; it becomes itself the most complete and thoughtful anthology of African thought, the area’s most valuable work published as yet.” Heythrop Journal

Book Description
