Summary
Postcolonial African Philosophy sets out a timely and critical agenda for contemporary African, Afro-Caribbean, and African American philosophy. With many leading contributors, this collection of newly commissioned work provides key coverage of the postcolonial and the postmodern: the critique of eurocentrism in philosophy; philosophy in post-independence Africa and post-civil rights black America; multiculturalism; and intercultural dialogue between contemporary African and western philosophy. In addition, it includes important interventions on contemporary historical, political, and cultural situations of Africa and America at the end of the twentieth century, and philosophy's role in this milieu
