Pages by, of, or about African/a Philosophers (past and present)

This page includes African/a philosophers past and present. It is currently incomplete, and does not imply anything about who is "really" an African philosopher or not. If the individual has his or her own home page, it can be accessed by clicking on the name. Otherwise, information pages or other revelant resources are located across from the person's name. Underlined names indicate that there is a home page or an information page. If you think a name should be on here, or you have a link, please let me know. If you do not see an entry for someone here, you could try the International Directory of African Studies Scholars at Columbia. It may provide useful information. Eventually email addresses will also be included for those who have them.
