Wiredu K., Abraham W.E., Irele A., Menkiti I.A. (eds.) A Companion to African Philosophy
Malden, MA: Blackwell Pub., 2004. — 608 p. — (Blackwell Companions to Philosophy) — ISBN 0-631-20751-1.

This volume, comprised of 42 newly commissioned and 5 adapted essays, provides comprehensive coverage of African philosophy, ranging across disciplines and throughout the ages. The essays encompass all the main branches of philosophy — logic, epistemology, metaphysics, aesthetics, ethics, religion, and politics, among others — as these have occupied the African mind in both communal and individual conceptions. A special feature of the volume is its historical dimension, including a substantial treatment of ancient African philosophy as encountered in ancient Egypt, an extended study of medieval North African thinkers, an enlightening discussion of pre-colonial African philosophy, and a history of African political thought in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
