Albert Kasanda, Contemporary African Social and Political Philosophy: Trends, Debates and Challenges. Routledge, 2018.
The book launch will take place in the Conference Hall in the Institute of Philosophy CAS on June 19, 2018 at 3 pm.
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.
The book will be published also in the Czech language in the publishing house Filosofia in autumn 2018.
