Description

The website has a very brief page on African philosophy so this is a short episode.

African Philosophy is a disputed term, partly because it is not clear if it refers to philosophies with a specifically African theme or context (such as distinctively African perceptions of time, personhood, etc.), or just any philosophizing carried out by Africans (or even people of African descent).

One of the earliest works of political philosophy was the Maxims of the Egyptian official and philosopher Ptah-Hotep as early as the 24th Century B.C. The Egyptian Hellenistic philosopher Plotinus of the 3rd Century B.C. is credited with founding the Neoplatonist school of philosophy.

And as mentioned, I'm going to take just a couple of days off to decide my next route.  This wraps up 5 Minute Philosophy and I hope you enjoyed it.

Back soon with another short series and we have two new interviews coming next week as well.

Thanks --- Jeff
