William Kluback has put together a book of imagined conversations based on the poetical and philosophical ideas of Léopold Sédar Senghor, president of Senegal (1960-1980). A poet and statesman, Senghor believes in the moral evolution of humanity and embodies a universalism rare in a world of nationalism and power politics.

About the Author:

The Author: William Kluback is a writer. He was a former professor of philosophy at the City University of New York. His latest book is a study of the Romanian poet and essayist Benjamin Fondane. He has just completed his fifth volume of Valéry studies.

Review:

«Taking his lead from Senghor, William Kluback has asked his own questions of the twentieth-century philosophers Senghor most admired. He considers Jacques Maritain, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Paul Claudel, and Gaston Bachelard in the context of what the African, Senghor, sought and found in them. To their voices he adds that of Senghor, as a rare link between two traditions of thinking about the spiritual dimension of human experience...The result is a highly personal book that amplifies the contribution of an African voice to ongoing conversations about the value and significance of human life.» (Janet G. Vaillant, Harvard University, Exerpt from the Preface)
