Philosophy of African American Studies: Nothing Left of Blackness (African American Philosophy and the African Diaspora)

 
9781137549969: Philosophy of African American Studies: Nothing Left of Blackness (African American Philosophy and the African Diaspora)

In this ground-breaking book, Stephen C. Ferguson addresses a seminal question that is too-often ignored: What should be the philosophical basis for African American studies? The volume explores philosophical issues and problems in their relationship to Black studies. Ferguson shows that philosophy is not a sterile intellectual pursuit, but a critical tool to gathering knowledge about the Black experience.  

Cultural idealism in various forms has become enormously influential as a framework for Black studies. Ferguson takes on the task of demonstrating how a Marxist philosophical perspective offers a productive and fruitful way of overcoming the limitations of idealism. Focusing on the hugely popular Afrocentric school of thought, this book’s engaging discussion shows that the foundational arguments of cultural idealism are based on a series of analytical

and historical misapprehensions. In turn, Ferguson argues for the centrality of the Black working class―both men and women―to Black Studies.

About the Author:

Stephen C. Ferguson II is Associate Professor in Liberal Studies at North Carolina A & T State University, USA. He is the co-author of Beyond The White Shadow: Philosophy, Sports and the African American Experience with John McClendon. He has written for Socialism & Democracy, Cultural Logic, and The Black Scholar, among other journals.

Review:

uson's erudite work is the definitive clarification of the dialogic, 'The Challenge of Blackness.' Ferguson's epistemological tour de force critique of Afrocentrism will challenge its proponents to deeply rethink a flawed, ahistorical paradigm. Brilliantly written, this book takes a keen look at how a pop culture idea is driven by the collective sensibilities of 'false blackness' among African Americans.' - Malik Simba, Emeritus Professor of Africana Studies and History, California State Uni
