AAST 131 - Traditional African Cosmology

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
Attribute: 3SS, CD, WR
How do Africans conceive the origin and nature of their universe? What is their view of God? How do they relate to natural phenomena and the dead? This course surveys traditional African cosmology through various avenues, including systems of believe, philosophy, cultural practices, and state formations. It also probes how African nationalists (e.g. Nkrumah, Nyerere, etc.) invoked such beliefs and practices in the independence struggles and incorporated them into their political philosophies.
Enrollment Limit: 25
Instructor: D. Opoku
