Item description for Awo As a Philosopher by Moses Akin Makinde...

Chief Obafemi Awolowo, or Awo, was a politician and statesman, intellectual, and one of the leading African philosophers of the twentieth century, as such best known for writing his African Platonic tract The Peoples's Republic in 1968, and his doctrine of 'Mental Magnitude'. His cardinal social principles were the development of mind and body, in the context of contemporary, developing Africa, free education and free health. Makinde's study and biography, a product of discussions with Awo between 1979 and 1987, as well as research, examines his social and political philosophy, and his metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and philosophy of science, religion and traditional medicine. It includes some of Awo's most enduring writings, and speeches. This is a long-overdue, but welcome publication, for a long time impossible in Nigeria because of its dangerously democratic content, Awo having been variouly described as 'the main issue in Nigerian politics' (Ibrahim Babangida) and 'the best President Nigeria never had' (Odumegwu Ojukwu).
