The Heavy Burden Of Philosophy Beyond African Philosophy

Reihe: Studies in African Philosophy, Band 6, 2007, broschiert, 336 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-8258-0538-8

The book explores the phenomenon of unintended ethnocentric commitment as the Ibuaru (heavy burden) of philosophy, as a culture-related enterprise in the age of globalization. With examples, the author shows the special character of the problem beyond the classical issue of value-oriented bias in inquiry. He delves into the consequences of the problem by relating it to what he calls the "Tempelsian damage" in African philosophy. Expounding the thematic, he inquires into "the universal and categorical character statements", "raw and complementary cognitive ambiences", "encrypted phenomena", "the arusi controversy", "conceptual decolonization", "meaning, understanding and language", "copycat-philosophy", "origin and nature of ideas", etc.
