About this book

This book provides a case for the de-stigmatisation of ethnophilosophy by demonstrating its continuing relevance in contemporary African philosophy. The book brings together established and brilliant young scholars who defend ethnophilosophy as a unique source of African philosophy with the capacity to colour African philosophical scholarship, thereby distinguishing African philosophy from other philosophical traditions of the world and setting the stage for philosophical dialogue in the 21st century characterised by multiculturalism and globalisation. The volume addresses the future of African philosophy by closely linking the past of this tradition with the exciting projects of the contemporary system builders whose works emerge from the ethnophilosophical while transcending it. The book is aimed at African philosophy experts, scholars of intercultural philosophy, African studies scholars and graduate students of African and intercultural philosophy.

About the authors

Ada Agada received his PhD from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. His first book, Existence and Consolation: Reinventing Ontology, Gnosis, and Values in African Philosophy, has been highly praised for its originality and is a winner of the prestigious CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title (OAT) award. He is the recipient of research fellowships from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH), the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), and the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS). He is currently writing a major monograph and a series of articles that ground consolationism in traditional and contemporary African thought while projecting the thought-system in an intercultural context. Agada is currently a researcher at Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany, and a senior researcher at the Conversational School of Philosophy, Calabar, Nigeria.
