This multi-authored volume is a welcome addition to the growing literature in African philosophy. Its principal focus is the invigoration of efforts towards the excavation of knowledge (both extant and primordial) in African philosophy. It does this by the different ways in which the contributions attempt to develop further some important aspects and subthemes in the field. Insofar as the edited collection does this, it contributes to a number of contemporary endeavors aimed at straddling the fine and subtle lines between methodological and substantive issues in African philosophy, on the one hand, and the history of African philosophy as well as the debates about the future direction of African philosophy, on the other hand.
