The African Novel of Ideas by Professor Jeanne-Marie Jackson has been selected as one of fifty-five most anticipated books of 2021, by Brittle Paper. The African Novel of Ideas focuses on the role of the philosophical novel and the place of philosophy more broadly in the intellectual life of the African continent, from the early twentieth century to today. In charting philosophy’s evolution from a dominant to marginal presence in African literary discourse across the past hundred years, it assesses the push and pull of subjective experience and abstract thought.
