Product Description
Much has been said about African philosophy or the lack thereof in modern society. One only has to look no further than to the group of Africans who years earlier visualized and instituted the modern and the structure of what we call modern philosophy. The Bantu people of Sub-Saharan Africa and like the Ibo's of Nigeria have a distinctive philosophy which has flourished for centuries in their language and culture, and for which there is no serious attempt by Western philosophers to acknowledge or to inculcate into modern philosophy. Temples' book put that held belief to rest and argues that the African philosophical categories can be identified through language, culture and metaphysical attributes of their lives.
