“Handsome is as handsome does”: Interrelations of the epistemic, the moral, and the aesthetic in an african culture
The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 1999:187-196 (1999)
AbstractToday the study of African aesthetics constitutes one of the most exciting and dynamic subdisciplines in African and intercultural studies. Yet, because it is also a discipline in which African meanings must of necessity be translated into and expressed by one of the few ‘world’ languages (English, French), it is in the interests of all concerned—Africans and non-Africans—to work together to ensure that the highest possible professional standards are maintained. For it is intercultural dialogue based upon reciprocal language fluency that will best enable researchers to see where Western and African values and beliefs overlap and where they diverge
