Ancient and Modern by Stephen Muecke

Book Description

How might we think and talk about indigenous philosophy? Why has Aboriginal knowledge not been given the status of philosophical knowledge, but treated by whites rather as culture or history? There is a quarrel about whose antiquity is at the foundation of Australian culture, and why contemporary forms of Aboriginality are marginal to Australia's modernity. These are the starting points for the essays contained in Stephen Muecke's original and challenging book.

Books By Author Stephen Muecke

Gularabulu by Stephen Muecke Gularabulu, Paperback (December 2016)

A groundbreaking presentation, in a revised edition, of Indigenous Australian storytelling as it actually sounds; these stories provide a fascinating picture of the life of the people of the west Kimberley after colonisation.

Appetites for Thought by Stephen Muecke Appetites for Thought, Paperback (February 2015)

A quirky, off-beat take on philosophers and their palates, tracing the food obsessions of philosophers from Diogenes to Sartre, Appetites for Thought guides us around the philosophers' banquet table with erudition, wit and irreverence.

Contingency in Madagascar by Stephen Muecke Contingency in Madagascar, Paperback (March 2012)

Storytelling and intimacy conspire in the magic of the street theatre that is the contingent encounter. Here one's participation is already loaded; any engagement involves risks of thought or of feeling. The authors work with an aesthetic of the glimpse; fleeting encounters with wisdom and beauty.
