I feel privileged to be working this week with our first African writer, for Philosophical Investigations. I have long wanted to shift us (further) away from Eurocentrism. Not that we are too Eurocentric. We have published writers from four continents, and the Pacific. It is an essay on the (not so) new view of colonialism -- which accidentally coincides with recent posts on my blog. OBSERVATION: Typically we invite authors to select an image to accompany an essay. This one from the Collectie Tropenmuseum seems to express well what the essay says, but let me not let the cat out of the bag.
