The Palgrave Handbook of African Philosophy


This handbook investigates the current state and future possibilities of African Philosophy, as a discipline and as a practice, vis-√†-vis the challenge of African development and Africa's place in a globalized, neoliberal capitalist economy. The volume offers a comprehensive survey of the philosophical enterprise in Africa, especially with reference to current discourses, arguments and new issues-feminism and gender, terrorism and fundamentalism, sexuality, development, identity, pedagogy and multidisciplinarity, etc.-that are significant for understanding how Africa can resume its arrested march towards decolonization and liberation.   

Adeshina Afolayan holds a doctorate in philosophy from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He is the editor of Auteuring Nollywood (2014).

Toyin Falola is the Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossiker Chair Professor in the Humanities and a Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas at Austin.
