In Search of Foundations for African Catholicism, Charles Nyamiti’s Theological Methodology.
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Studies in Christian Mission
Förlag: Brill Academic Publishers
This book is an analysis of the way in which Tanzanian Roman Catholic professor Charles Nyamiti has attempted to combine African traditions and values with neo-Scholastic theology and philosophy. The outcome of the analysis is that in this attempt, Nyamiti needs to rework considerably African traditions in order that they will not collide with "philosophia perennis". Additionally, he deals with the African traditions on the existential level leaving the questions of substance (substantia) to the traditional Roman Catholic thinking. The outcome is an intriguing piece of African philosophical-theological system-building.
