Abstract:

Wilhelm Anton Amo is probably the only African personality that took part with his own writings in the intellectual discourses of the 18th Century in Europe. There is no contradiction between his personal thought and the general spirit of the Enlightenment. Amo debated on all the important questions of philosophy at the time - from metaphysics through logic and epistemology to political philosophy and philosophy of language. But his intellectual works remain till today unknown. The present increasing interest in his person no doubt arises from the growing importance of intercultural philosophy.
