WINNER OF THE ANYIAM-OSIGWE PRIZE 2014 FOR BEST BOOK BY AN AFRICAN PHILOSOPHER
The concept of Ubuntu is known as the life philosophy of Nelson Mandela. The South African philosopher Mogobe Ramose wrote the classic work on this way of looking at the world, showing how it changes our view of language, politics, religion, the legal system, and our relationships with the earth and each other. According to Ubuntu, existence is a continuous current, in which everything is always seeking balance. This philosophy has a lot to offer not only for Africa, but also for the West.
