About the Author

Souleymane Bachir Diagne is professor in the Departments of French and Philosophy at Columbia University. His other books include Islam et societe ouverte, La fidelite et le mouvement dans la pensee de Muhammad Iqbal, and 100 mots pour dire l'islam. Chike Jeffers teaches in the Department of Philosophy at Northwestern University. He has also translated Aime Cesaire's Letter to Maurice Thorez.


"It perfectly articulates all of the answers to the questions one asks himself when in contact with modern, postmodern, and contemporary Western arts, as well as non-Western traditional arts."--New York Times Book Review
"Diagne has further entrenched his reputation as a clear-sighted thinker."--African Studies Review
"The book is an inspiring read with excellent bibliographical references and notes for readings on Negritude that will attract a wide audience of readers. As such, African Art as Philosophy makes an important contribution to African studies from a multidisciplinary perspective." --African Studies Quarterly
"To suggest the importance of rhythm and convergence in Senghor's thought is not original, but what Diagne's book does offer is a way that, by reading for origins of Senghor's ideas, we can focus on his larger project rather dismiss his thought as essentialist."--Rhythm and Knowledge
