Editorial Reviews


"This powerful and wide ranging anthology is ideal for classroom use. The issues discussed are central: the selections are engaging; and the contributors are of the highest order. It will help bring about a long overdue change in the philosophical canon." Robert Bernasconi, University of Memphis

"We are indeed blessed to have Eze's wide-ranging and magnificent anthology. It brings together some of the most stimulating texts of African, African-American, Afro-Caribbean, and Black European philosophy. Its ambitious effort will serve well all those interested in African studies and students and specialists of philosophy in general." V. Y. Mudimbe, Stanford University

From the Back Cover

Bringing together canonical philosophical texts from African, African-American, Afro-Caribbean, and Black European thinkers, this major new anthology is designed to serve both as a textbook and as the authoritative reference volume in Africana philosophical and cultural studies.

The texts collected here also have enormous historical range: from traditional to modern, pre-colonial through colonial to post-colonial; and from the slave period through emancipation and the Civil Rights movements to the postmodern. In so doing, they represent a variety of cultural and ideological viewpoints, including secular, feminist, Christian, Islamic, and animist perspectives.

The volume will be useful for all those in gender and race theory as well as cultural, post-colonial, and black studies.


The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This work shines light on several icons of African thought, who are usually quoted more than they are read. By drawing from sources as diverse as Cabral and Wiredu, he has given a powerful tool to researchers, and has made it possible for students to learn what thinkers have said, not just what critics feel. This is a unique anthology, and would be a great starting point for any serious work on thought by Africans or people of African descent. This work is not burdened with much contextual analysis of the works, and this reveals the power in many of these works. Several of these authors are deceased or available only after critical analysis, and it is valuable to read their own words . A long read, but one that warrants time and attention. A phenomenal work.
