Indigenous Shona Philosophy

Reconstructive Insights

Pascah Mungwini



Some of the most provoctive questions confronted by philosophers in Africa are grounded in historical memory. Among these are the experiences of conquest and the subsequent peripheralisation of most things African including its knowledge and philosophy. This book is in part a response to this nemetic experience. The book is a critical reconstruction of indigenous Shona philosophy as an aspect of the African intellectual heritage.
