Pressestimmen..."George Yancy has authored a thought-provoking book, that is a historic first. "African-American Philosophers: 17 Conversations is the first book to present candid interviews with Black philosophers... Yancy's well-received book features the intellectual progeny of pioneering Black philosophers like Alain Locke."
..."a great book, and a book to which no generic classification can do justice...What emerges most forcefully from these discussions is a solid appreciation of the deep cultural embeddedness of philosophical practice...an outstandingly "enjoyable read."
.."a singularly important contribution to contemporary philosophy and black studies."
-James G. Spader," Philadelphia New Observer, Feb 10 1999
"Yancy characterizes this work as an attempt to move the center of mainstream Euro-American philosophical conversations to include other, equally legitimate streams. The views of these philosophers with varying degrees of 'raced-centered concern' make for fascinating reading to those interested in both philosophy and race relations."
-"Booklist, November 1, 1998
"Yancy has performed an invaluable service by compiling timely interviews with a diverse group of African American philosphers....Highly recommended for all collections and all academic philosophers."
