African art as philosophy : Senghor, Bergson, and the idea of negritude by Souleymane Bachir Diagne( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Léopold Sédar Senghor (1906-2001) was a Senegalese poet and philosopher who in 1960 also became the first president of the Republic of Senegal. In African Art as Philosophy, Souleymane Bachir Diagne takes a unique approach to reading Senghor's influential works, taking as the starting point for his analysis Henri Bergson's idea that in order to understand philosophers one must find the initial intuition from which every aspect of their work develops. In the case of Senghor, Diagne argues that his primordial intuition is that African art is a philosophy

L'encre des savants : réflexions sur la philosophie en Afrique by Souleymane Bachir Diagne( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Partant de ce fait que la philosophie africaine connaît aujourd'hui un important développement et fait l'objet de nombreuses publications, l'auteur examine le champ de questions et l'espace de débat que constitue l'activité philosophique en Afrique pour présenter ici à la fois un "précis" de cette activité et un exposé de ses propres réflexions sur les thèmes les plus importants autour desquels elle s'organise. L'on peut considérer en effet, constate-t-il, que pour l'essentiel quatre grandes questions constituent les enjeux majeurs de la réflexion philosophique africaine : premièrement celle de l'ontologie en relation avec les religions et l'esthétique, deuxièmement celle du temps plus particulièrement de l'avenir et de la prospective, troisièmement celle de l'oralité et des implications de sa transcription/traduction, quatrièmement enfin celle, politique, des socialismes. Ces grandes questions posent aussi celle, fondamentale, et qui les traverse, des langues et de la traduction."--Page 4 of cover
