Endangered African Knowledges and the Challenge of Modernity

An Igbo Response

«

“The book insightfully succeeds in pointing out that solidarity in Igbo society, and in Africa more widely, is a mode of perceiving the world, a ‘social imaginary’. As such, it may provide, so the argument goes, the much-sought-after epistemic resources to counteract and redress the disruptive effects of Africa’s modernization.”

Toon Braeckman, Professor of Philosophy (emeritus), KU Leuven, Belgium

“This book adeptly articulates a response to the challenge of modernity, drawing on Igbo (African) epistemic resources. The author demonstrates an exceptional grasp of global politics of knowledge. Scholars working on African philosophy, African studies, postcolonial/decolonial studies, and related fields will find it greatly useful.”

Edwin Etieyibo, Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Department of Philosophy, University of Witwatersrand, South Africa
