Caribbean political philosophy

By February 1, 2019 Philosophy

It is clear that an understanding of Caribbean political philosophy is an understanding of the postcolonial project. In critically assessing the utility of creolization as an analytical tool for overcoming questions surrounding the conceptual relevance and political effectiveness of Caribbean philosophy in its anti-colonial aspects, what has been unfolded is that creolizaion can in fact be used to sift out a distinctiveness in Caribbean philosophy. As earlier engaged Creolization refers to the interplay between world culture and national cultures, focusing on how commodities, or cultural objects and practices more generally, are assigned meanings and uses in receiving cultures. However, they are peculiar issues that present themselves that not only questions whether the methodical process of creolization thought important or relevant enough to be discussed in alignment to the issues in Caribbean philosophy. Yet looking at creolization and its impact on the political make up of political thought, it is acknowledged that the ideologies of the Caribbean people are in play. Caribbean philosophy in and of its current form can not be said to have fully matured in mine eyes but this may just be the problem for us as political thinking caribbean people in that we need to liberate our minds from Western influences.
