Product Description

African philosophy is expressed in a variety of ways: divination, healing, mathematics, cosmology, mysticism, ethics, sacred science, which are all at the disposal of the dibia, the master of wisdom. These volumes elucidate, from an initiate (1947), the exegesis of African philosophical meditation and practices at their highest and most authentic. Because of his professional training and commitment to extending the achievements of African civilizations, Prof. Umeh, dibia and academic, brings to this study a lifetime of practice, study and inside information from a variety of traditional sources impossible for any non-practitioner (Ofeke) to obtain.

The philosophy is grounded in ethics and morals and its grasp is not open to any student, but those who are tested and tried for moral character and good social practice, unlike within the Western academy where anyone can pursue (dangerous) knowledge without any grounding in moral philosophy.
