AFST528 Sage Philosophy: The Root of African Philosophy and Religion (4 cr.)


The course focuses on the general nature of philosophy and its connection with philosophy and religion in Africa through the study of ethnophilosophy and African traditional religions. Particular areas of interest include folk sagacity and philosophical sagacity. Particularly the course addresses sage philosophy in relation to culture, western debate over reason, ethnophilosophy, professional philosophy, African political philosophy, Kenyan sages and rationality, and finally sage philosophy in contemporary Africa. During the course, students are guided in analysis of the views of scholars such as J. S. Mbiti and Placide Tempels, and African leaders such as Kwame Nkurumah and Julius Nyerere.
