Black Existentialism and Decolonizing Knowledge

Writings of Lewis R. Gordon

«Lewis R. Gordon’s written words—along with his music, love, compassion, and interconnected humanity— teaches us to end “cruelty” and dehumanizing of the Damned of the Earth by “open[ing] our hearts to the freedom and possibility of life” and thereby making the world more livable for all humans and more-than-humans.»

«Profound and authoritative essays by one of the leading contemporary Black philosophers of existence. As a towering figure in Black Existentialism Lewis Gordon weaves through a variety of contemporary issues such as antiblack racism, decolonization, bad faith, jazz, and the human sciences, from an Africana existential philosophical perspective. A must-read collection of essays.»

Mabogo P. More, Research Associate, University of Limpopo, South Africa

«A dive into these selected writings by Lewis R. Gordon is a dive into an alternative conceptual scheme. That scheme is informed by existentialism and an epistemology that faces reality – especially the reality of those that Gordon calls the Damned. This is not an epistemology paraded as pure knowledge void of human agency. It hears victims and the rising tide of new voices. It shifts, in effect, the geography of reason, and thereby, what ‘reason’ itself means. The reader of Black Existentialism and Decolonizing Knowledge is in for a swim within new knowledge for a new world.»

Leonard Harris, Professor of Philosophy, Purdue University, USA
