Great introduction

highly informative and intelligible; more than just an introduction both Indian and African philosophy

:)

really looking fwd to getting stuck into this.
i absolutely abhor the racist ‘sub-saharan’ designation.
hellenic & mesopotamian myth/religion philosophy all began as oral.
colonialism eradicated traditional writing forms. kenya for example had a script called ‘gichandi’ & with it the tale of easy african cosmology.
several greeks made their way through east africa from egypt to the great rift valley.
still grateful for this resource & looking forward to more.

Engaging, succinct, informative

Enjoying this so far, easy to understand; even coming from a western, non philosophical, secular background. Looking forward to more to come.
