New book “Contemporary African Social and Political Philosophy”

Albert Kasanda, Contemporary African Social and Political Philosophy: Trends, Debates and Challenges. Routledge, 2018.

The book explores what constitutes contemporary African social and political philosophy with regard to its meaning, aims, sources, and relevance for today’s Africa. Kasanda defines contemporary African social and political philosophy as an inclusive reflection of African communities with regard to power and equitable modes of social and political organization. The book sheds new light on debates concerning topics such as ethnophilosophy, negritude, pan-Africanism, democracy, African civil society, African cultures, and globalization.
