African century journal   ISSN 2514-5673

I am a man, nothing human is alien to me‘ – Terence the African.

This peer-reviewed journal was started in 1999 at the dawn of the 21st Century.

This is our sixth  issue of the relaunched journal.

We  welcome Professor Emeritus Robin Chandler to our editorial team. I have known Dr Chandler for many years and her devotion to arts, justice, empowerment  and spirituality is unquestionable and profound.

In this issue we are looking closely at recent controversies  in Kant scholarship and western philosophy. Following the pioneering work of Peter Park -”Africa, Asia and the History of Philosophy: racism in the formation of the philosophical canon 1780-1830” which followed on from the work of Robert Bernasconi, particularly ‘Will the real Kant please stand up’ Radical Philosophy issue 117, this issue is now  forefront of philosophical discussion. Following Park’s work Bryan Norden has chimed in with ‘Why the Western philosophical canon is xenophobic and racist’ and then there is Wulf Hund’s important “‘It must come from Europe’ the racism of Immanuel Kant’ and then Norden’s latest contribution ‘Tacking back Philosophy’.

We  publish the last in our series on Appiah and identify his endorsement of genocide.

Dr Wes Morris explains how the parlous situation of the economy in Jamaica is merely a reflection of the  lack of political leadership and that the opportunities exist to transform the country and society.

African century journal   ISSN 2514-5673

I am a man, nothing human is alien to me‘ – Terence the African.

This peer-reviewed journal was started in 1999 at the dawn of the 21st Century

This is our second issue of the relaunched journal.

We welcome Dr Wesley Morris to the Editorial Board. We will provide a formal introduction at our next issue, but suffice to say Dr Morris  is engaged in interesting political and intellectual activity  in Jamaica and has much to contribute to the Africa and the African diaspora.

There is a great fear among African and diaspora academics against stepping too far out of line in critiquing the establishment. We have found a great many supporters  who will prefer to remain behind the barricades.

Structural adjustment appears to have had long lasting effects on the morale and courage of African and diaspora academics. Nevertheless we are hoisting our flag here. The insurgency starts NOW.
