Philosophy in an African Place

Paperback / softback
Philosophy in an African Place shifts the central question of African philosophy from Is there an African philosophy? to What is it to do philosophy in this (African) place? This book both opens up new questions within the field and also establishes philosophy-in-place , a mode of philosophy which begins from the places in which concepts have currency and shows how a truly creative philosophy can emerge from focusing on questioning, listening, and attention to difference.
