Overview

Existence and Consolation offers a new stage in original African philosophy that transcends the vestiges of both European colonialism and African ethnocentrism. Consolation philosophy is the culmination of loose developments in African thought that stretch back to ancient Egypt. It reconstructs and reinvents African thought in the wake of the modernism and deconstruction that left African philosophy fractured and reaches a relatively complete synthesis. In his philosophy of mood, metaphysics combines with morality and rationality is combined with emotionality, creating wholeness with universal appeal.
