9780415926454: Caliban's Reason: Introducing Afro-Caribbean Philosophy (Africana Thought)

Paget introduces the general reader to Afro-Caribbean philosophy in this ground-breaking work. Since Afro-Caribbean thought is inherently hybrid in nature, he traces the roots of this discourse in traditional African thought and in the Christian and Enlightenment traditions of Western Europe.

Review:

...this volume is a cutting-edge contribution to the debate on African ethnophilosophy.
Choice

Paget Henry refines the intellectual life of the Caribbean like an alchemist [which results] in a high level of sophistication and reflexivity. The result is both a revealing work of intellectual history, and a new impetus in philosophy.
–Randall Collins, author of The Sociology of Philosophies: A Global Theory of Intellectual Change

...will provoke lively discussion and stimulate a healthy debate about the process and content of Caribbean creolization and philosophy.
–Roberto Marquez, William R. Kenan Professor of Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Mount Holyoke College

...this volume is a cutting-edge contribution to the debate on African enthophilosophy..
–T.L. Lott, San Jose State University
