About the book

What does it mean, early in the twenty-first century, to be an African philosopher? In effect, how does African philosophy remain relevant in the age of globalisation? These are two of the momentous questions Emmanuel Chukwudi Eze addresses in Reason, Memory and Politics.

Eze, in this work, engages his African colleagues’ philosophies in a way that contributes to a re-invention of the global society, or at least in promoting the idea of communities of researchers dedicated to investigating emerging new questions about the futures of the discipline and its social and historical roles in the broader intellectual and ethical formation of modern, postmodern, non-sexist, non-racist and post-colonial subjectivities.

‘This book forms part of an emerging zone of scholarship which seeks to theo­rize Africa and its intellectual lineages in a broader universal perspective. It is highly pertinent and cutting edge’ − Isabel Hofmeyr, Professor of African Languages and literature, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa
