Acerca de


The question whether or not there is African philosophy has, for too long, dominated the philosophical scene in Africa, to the neglect of substantive issues generated by the very fact of human existence. This has unfortunately led to an impasse in the development of a distinctive African philosophical tradition. In this path-breaking book, Segun Gbadegesin offers a new and promising approach which recognizes the traditional and contemporary facets of African philosophy by exploring the issues they raise. In Part I, the author examines, with refreshing insights, the philosophical concepts of the person, individuality, community and morality, religiosity and causality, focusing on the Yoruba of Nigeria. Part II discusses, in an original way, contemporary African social, political and economic realities from a philosophical perspective.

About the Author:

The Author: Segun Gbadegesin received his B.Sc. in Philosophy, Politics and Economics with a First Class Honors from the University of Ife, Nigeria and his M.A. and Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria, where he has also served as Head of the Philosophy Department and Vice Dean of the Faculty of Arts. He was Visiting Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1989-1990, and is currently Visiting Professor of Philosophy at Colgate University, Hamilton, New York. In addition to many contributions to academic journals, he is editor of The Politicization of Society During Nigeria's Second Republic, 1979-83.
