About the Author

Lewis R. Gordon is Professor of Philosophy, Religion, and Judaic Studies at Temple University, Philadelphia.


'Gordon's introduction to Africana philosophy is a broad interdisciplinary invitation to students and philosophers to engage in a critical reflection on the 'human condition' in Africa and the African diaspora. Students who have taken my class in African philosophy have greatly appreciated his lucid style as well as the historical and thematic analysis of the key concepts and influential scholars that have defined Africana philosophy and mapped out future orientations. it is indeed a historical introduction that works well in the classroom.' Elias Kifon Bongmba, Harry and Hazel Chavanne Chair in Christian Theology, Rice University and President, African Association for the Study of Religion
