From the Publisher"...the "first comprehensive" work to present the different areas, questions, problems, and issues of the "species of Africana thought" which is to be called "philosophy.".... Lewis Gordon's An Introduction to Africana Philosophy had a particularly crucial function to carry out: outline a field still in the process of being constituted. Gordon has accomplished this."
--International Journal of African Historical Studies, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Columbia University
"Gordon's Introduction to Africana Philosophy is a broad interdisciplinary invitation to students and philosophers to engage in a critical reflection on the "human condition" in Africa and the African diaspora. Students who have taken my class in African philosophy have greatly appreciated his lucid style as well as the historical and thematic analysis of the key concepts and influential scholars that have defined Africana philosophy and mapped out future orientations. It is indeed a historical introduction that works well in the classroom.”
