The African Origins of Western Civilization, Religion, and Ethics Philosophy Dr. Muata Ashby’s book sets the stage with discussions of Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) civilization, and how the original teachings of the great Shepsu led to the rise of other traditions like Ayurveda on the Indian Subcontinent and, of course, Christianity.

African Literature. African literature refers to literature of and from Africa. As George Joseph notes on the first page of his chapter on African literature in Understanding Contemporary Africa, while the European perception of literature generally refers to written letters, the African concept includes oral literature.

As George Joseph continues. With entries ranging from the African ethnic groups to members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Africana, Second Edition, conveys the history and scope of cultural expression of people of African descent with unprecedented depth. African traditional medicine is a form of holistic health care system organized into three levels of specialty, namely divination, spiritualism, and herbalism.

Traditional African healing. The definition of traditional healing varies. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) (WHO, 8) traditional medicine/healing is “the sum total of all knowledge and practices, whether explicable or not, used in diagnosing, preventing or eliminating a physical, mental or social disequilibrium and which rely exclusively on past experience and Cited by: "A Traditional African Concept of Community Related to Ethical Intuitionism" This paper is concerned primarily with articulating a concept of community found in traditional African philosophy and relating that concept to the Western view of ethical intuitionism.

In this manner, I hope to strengthen ethical intuitionism and. contemporary discourse, the concept of leadership and governance has attracted a wider spread interest as they serves as the pivot on which social, political and economic structures rest.

Rather, Africana philosophy is a third-order, metaphilosophical, umbrella-concept used to bring organizing oversight to various efforts of philosophizing —that is, activities of reflective, critical thinking and articulation and aesthetic expression—engaged in by persons and peoples African and of African descent who were and are indigenous residents of continental Africa and residents of the many African.

The third edition of Africana Studies: A Survey of Africa and the African Diaspora is an update of the second edition () and incorporates new chapters that include expanded coverage of issues on women, health, terrorism, the African Union, and many others, as well as the most recent theories and methods in Africana studies.

To date, Africana Studies remains the most Reviews: 1. The writers of the new volumes of the General History of Africa wish to break with this binary and simplistic perspective of relations between Africa and its diasporas.

By introducing the concept of global Africa, the International Scientific Committee wishes to propose an innovative reinterpretation of these connections.

Since the world war, development has been synonymous with economic, social, and political change. The concept was popularised in terms of a " philosophy " or " world view " (as opposed to a quality attributed to an individual) beginning in the s, notably in the writings of Jordan Kush Ngubane published in the African Drum magazine.

From the s, the ubuntu began to be described as a specific kind. The concept of self-help, which became popular with the wave of New Age ideas, has been the mainstay of the African American community.

From the days of slavery, African Americans have had to develop coping skills just to stay alive. Some of the topics explored by Africana philosophy include: pre-Socratic African philosophy and modern day debates discussing the early history of Western philosophy, post-colonial writing in Africa and the Americas, black resistance to oppression, black existentialism in the United States, and the meaning of "blackness" in the modern world.
