Sage Philosophy by Henry Odera Oruka

"Sage Philosophy" explores the rich philosophical traditions of Africa, particularly focusing on the oral traditions of the Luo community of Kenya. The book challenges the conventional view that Africa lacks its own indigenous philosophy by documenting and analyzing the thoughts and teachings of various African sages, who are wise and respected figures within their communities. Through interviews and discussions, the author presents a comprehensive examination of their philosophical perspectives, arguing that these individuals engage in critical reflection and rational argumentation akin to their Western counterparts. The work emphasizes the importance of recognizing and preserving these intellectual traditions as a vital part of Africa's cultural heritage.
