Title:The contemporary stage in the development of African aesthetic
Author:Balogun, Odun
Periodical:Okike: an African Journal of New Writing
Geographic term:Subsaharan Africa
Abstract:This paper defines African aesthetics in two stages. The first part argues the case for a need to define what constitutes the African aesthetic in as much as it has been suggested that such a definition is uncalled for, taking cognizance of the attempts so far made to define the principles of African aesthetics by way of a historical survey. In the process the author gives his own definition of what he understands by African aesthetics. The second part of the article enumerates some of the features already suggested as characteristics of the African aesthetic. Notes.
