Zera Yacob in the Africana philosophy series – Peter Adamson & Chike Jeffers

This summer, Peter Adamson (Univ of Munich, Germany) and Chike Jeffers (Dalhousie Univ, Canada) have made an episode on the Ethiopian philosopher Zera Yacob (1599-1693) and his treatise Inquiry (Hatäta, 1667).

This episode on Zera Yacob is part of the Africana philosophy series, which is included in the podcast History of Philosophy without any gaps (HoPwag). At the end of «Further reading», Adamson and Jeffers writes:

«Blog post on the Hatata, including links to translation.

Our thanks to Dag Herbjørnsrud for help with this and the next episode!»
