Caliban's Reason introduces the general reader to Afro-Caribbean philosophy. In this ground-breaking work, Paget Henry traces the roots of this discourse in traditional African thought and in the Christian and Enlightenment traditions of Western Europe. Since Afro-Caribbean thought is inherently hybrid in nature and marked by strong competition betw moreeen its European and African orientations, Henry highlights its four main influences--traditional African philosophy, the Afro-Christian school, Poeticism and Historicism--as his organizing principle for discussion. Offering a critical assessment of such writers as Wilson Harris, Derek Walcott, Edward Blyden, C.L.R. James and George Padmore, Caliban's Reason renders a much-needed portrait of Afro-Caribbean philosophy and fills a significant gap in the field. less
