Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1986, Knowledge, Belief, and Witchcraft remains the only analysis of indigenous discourse about an African belief system undertaken from within the framework of Anglo-American analytical philosophy. Taking as its point of departure W. V. O. Quine's thesis about the indeterminacy of translation, the book investigates questions of Yoruba epistemology and of how knowledge is conceived in an oral culture.

Synopsis:

This is the only analysis of indigenous discourse about an African belief system undertaken within the framework of Anglo-American analytical philosophy.
