Under which conditions can his practice of philosophy be a praxis of liberation, and his discourse constitute itself for self, by imparting to itself, in form and content, the language of one s own history, that is the unfolding of its historical reason or reasonable history?
These are the fundamental and existential questions at the heart of Muntu in Crisis, which is undoubtedly the most original work in the field of African Philosophy in the 20th century. In facing these questions, Fabien Eboussi Boulaga undertakes to lay out the foundations of a rigorous African philosophical practice, free from the burdens of the rationality which, by rejecting sentiment, color, history, accident and the local, manifested itself as another name of violence or war, not only spiritual but real.
Eboussi Boulaga demounts the grammar and the rhetoric of ethnophilosophy, this thrill of the colonized subject claiming to possess philosophies and engaged in the reconstruction of a lost or denied authenticity, while losing sight of the suffered alienation.
In the same vein, he rejects the traditionalized philosophy, that is philosophia perennis, intimately linked to the history of the West and to which the Muntu must conform by renouncing his own memory, traditions and desires.
Finally, without pretending to prescribe a method, Fabien Eboussi Boulaga shows how, instead of being a dramatization of the situation of the colonized or the allegory of the power of the colonizer, the Muntu s practice of philosophy can be a practice of emancipation and freedom, and a creative practice that assumes all his historical determinations.
