Course Description: This course provides a conceptual analysis and evaluation on pivotal issues that have emerged in, and continue to beset, philosophical thinking on post-colonial African societies. Various philosophers have questioned the veracity of the claim of liberation—of cultural, epistemological, ethical, political, and economic freedom—for Africans and their post-colonial states. The course explores this perceived absence of liberation and proceeds to examine the nature and pre-conditions of the liberation envisioned by these philosophers. It also examines the relevance of traditional African values, practices, and institutions to contemporary life, including modern expressions of ethnicity, nationhood, democracy, communitarian moral and political theory, ideology, political morality, economic transformation, science and technology, and the phenomena of globalization.
