Format: Paperback
This book's essays talk ABOUT African philosophy; there is little philosophical "meat" to speak of. Nonetheless, the various authors engage in a lively debate about the nature and possibilities of African philosophy. Some of the issues raised are applicable in a wider scope, i.e. for philosophy in general. For example, is "philosophy" limited to "professional" philosophy? Does (or should) philosophy only consider universal problems (across time and location), or should it stem from more local concerns?

Format: Paperback
Serequeberhan has gathered essays that illustrate the range and depth of contemporary African philosophy. These essays are a wonderful introduction to a growing and vibrant field of thought. I would highly recommend this work to those interested in analytic, continental, and especially comparative philosophy. I have used this text in introductory courses and have found it to be very accessible and thought provoking for students of all ranks and ethnic backgrounds.
