Reviews

"Dr. Gyekye makes wonderfully illuminating contribution to theoretical debates, while also having acute remarks to make on their practical political implications. Moreover this book contains a penetrating discussion of African culture. It is a genuinely exciting book."--Alasdair MacIntyre, Duke University "Gyekye makes wonderfully illuminating contributions to theoretical debate, while also having acute remarks to make on their practical political implications. Moreover, this book contains a penetrating discussion of African culture. It is a genuinely exciting achievement."-- --Alasdair MacIntyre, Duke University "I find this an excellent work on a topic which has been generally overlooked in the historiography of Africa. Not only does the author discuss philosophies of Africa, but how these philosophies in terms of traditions must compete in a changing world."--Sundiata A.K.M. Djata, Northern Illinois University "An excellent text [and] ueful in a variety of courses. [It] combines traditional African ideas with modern concepts very effectively."--Dennis Brutus, University of Pittsburgh
