Think differently. On philosophy in Africa. With Anke Graneß
How can we decolonialise philosophy? Historiography can make an important contribution to this project, and a critical examination of Africa in particular reveals approaches for transformation in a global perspective. Exploration of the continent’s history – from ancient Egypt to West Africa to the African diaspora – raises fundamental questions about how to deal with traditions of thought of oral societies as well as how to approach alternative sources and philosophical practices. Likewise, ethical questions arise regarding the role of religion, racism and slavery in philosophy and the interpretation and appropriation of intellectual heritage. In her major book Philosophie in Afrika. Herausforderungen einer globalen Philosophiegeschichte, Anke Graneß lays out the basic outlines of a new historiography of philosophy, and thus of a new way of thinking.
