Philosophy and Genre: Creating a Textual Basis for African Philosophy

Project description

African philosophy through texts

Based on the elaboration of different genre of texts, the EU-funded PhiGe project proposes a new approach for African philosophy. The basic idea is to study African philosophy through African sources and not as a discipline that is included in a framework of colonial or neo-colonial studies. The project will take into consideration a wide range of texts according to their genre: oral and written, fictional and non-fictional, public and private. The main aim of the project is to understand the philosophical meaning of the texts under examination. The project will apply a comparative study of texts in eight African and European languages.
