This insightful book is the first edited book volume in the literature to concern itself, primarily, with the question of life?s meaning from the, largely under-explored, African perspective.
In this collection, the authors have undertaken to answer this question, and other related questions, by showing some of the possible conceptions of life?s meaning that can be derived from traditional African perspectives.
