30 philosophers challenging the traditional western canon.
Inspired by UNESCO’s implementation of World Philosophy Day, illustrator Saskia Pfaetzer and writer Marian van Enckevort went on a journey of discovery. They were not hampered by any rules of categorisation. And here it is: an impressive showcase of thinkers from today and long ago, from the African continent and elsewhere. Anton Wilhelm Ano (Ghana), Pauline Jidenu Houtondji (Ivory Coast), Cornel West (USA), Paulo Freire (Brasil), Achille Mbembe (Cameroon), Sophie Bosede Oluwole and many are all there. Brief introductions, selected works, quotes and beautiful illustrations!
