Philosophy Under My Skin: A Conversation with Prof. Mogobe Ramose (U Limpopo, South Africa)

19jan2018 09:30 - 11:30


co-organized by the Philosophy & Public Affairs research group, Uitgeverij Ten Have and the Dutch Institute for the History of Slavery and its Heritage (Ninsee)

On the occasion of the Dutch translation of his book African Philosophy through Ubuntu, Prof. Mogobe Ramose will engage in a conversation with seminar participants on how philosophical reflection interacts with personal experiences and engagements in our world, with special attention to the everyday reality of migration, wealth, truthfulness and justice in human relations.

Ramose is a renowned African philosopher and professor of philosophy at the University of Limpopo, South Africa. His work bridges various domains in philosophy, shedding light on a variety of topics from a comparative perspective and offering insights from African philosophy. His 1999 book on Ubuntu has been influential in demonstrating how Ubuntu is relevant in domains ranging from religion via law and globalisation to ecology.

The discussion will be opened by introductory remarks from Prof. Ramose, followed by two short comments from Michael Onyebuchi Eze and Yolande Jansen (both UvA).
