Title:Lines and rhizomes: the transcontinental element in African philosophies
Editor:Binsbergen, Wim vanISNI
Periodical:Quest: An International African Journal of Philosophy (ISSN 1011-226X)
Geographic term:Africa
Abstract:This special issue of Quest brings together a number of studies united by the recognition that philosophy, whilst localized and homebound, at the same time is unbounded and transcontinental. An editorial introduction by Wim van Binsbergen is followed by eight essays: What is a line? On paradoxes about allegories of identity and alterity (Valetin Y. Mudimbe); Marcien Towa entre deux cultures (Samba Diakité); Philosophic sagacity: a classical comprehension and relevance to post-colonial social spaces in Africa (F. Ochieng'-Odhiambo); The use of several species of ad hominem arguments in Plato's 'Protagoras' (Victor S. Alumona); Four problems with Barry Hallen's analytic experiments in African philosophy (Kibujjo Kalumba); The eclectic scientism of Félix Guattari: Africanist anthropology as both critic and potential beneficiary of his thought (Wim M.J. van Binsbergen); The golden rule principle in an African ethics, and Kant's categorical imperative: a comparative study on the foundation of morality (Godwin Azenabor); L'éducation selon Mounier: une philosophie pratique au service du développement (Jacques Nanema).
