Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Hardcover

Description:

Hardcover. 176 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.6in. x 0.7in.As Anthony Pinn argues in his latest collection, humanism comes in many colors. When more attention is given to issues of race as connected to other forms of oppression, it is easier to see the manner in which humanism has lived and functioned within African American communities. Using the biblical figure Nimrod as symbol, African American Humanist Principles demonstrates African American humanists intellectual and praxis-related grounding in a history of rebellion against over-determined and oppressive limitations on human doing and being. Pinn maintains that it is this quest for a fuller sense of being -- for greater existential and ontological worth -- that informs the basic principles of African American humanism. African American Humanist Principles is one of the only books to present the inner workings of humanist principles as the foundation for humanism from the African American perspective -- its form and content, nature and meaning.

Synopsis: As Anthony Pinn argues in his latest collection, humanism comes in many colors. When more attention is given to issues of race as connected to other forms of oppression, it is easier to see the manner in which humanism has lived and functioned within African American communities. Using the biblical figure Nimrod as symbol, African American Humanist Principles demonstrates African American humanists' intellectual and praxis-related grounding in a history of rebellion against over-determined and oppressive limitations on human doing and being. Pinn maintains that it is this quest for a fuller sense of being - for greater existential and ontological worth - that informs the basic principles of African American humanism. African American Humanist Principles is one of the only books to present the inner workings of humanist principles as the foundation for humanism from the African American perspective - its form and content, nature and meaning.

Book Description:

"In this original and groundbreaking book, Anthony Pinn provides a creative proposal for a new field of study. Through his thorough and insightful analysis of the history and principles of black humanist thought, Pinn expands our understanding of the complexity and richness of African American philosophy, culture and ethics. In his compelling vision of the methodology and pedagogy of Black Humanist Studies, Pinn provides clear and thought-provoking directions for further interdisciplinary research. This is an invaluable work, one sure to be the catalyst for significant new developments in theological and ethical reflection." - Sharon Welch, Professor of Religious Studies, University of Missouri-Columbia
