With its unique, poetic style, these short works from Oluwole Komolafe provide the groundwork for free-spirited philosophical exploration and reflection on life from an African perspective.
Thoughts on Granite is a compelling collection of encounters with wisdom and reflections on cryptic issues of this world and is based on Komolafe's experiences-imaginary, real, and surreal. He shares his words in prose form, etching them in the minds of those eager to learn his thoughts on:
- African proverbs, philosophy, and poetry
- Abstract thought
- Knowledge of body, mind, and soul
- Application of philosophy in village vernacular
- Objects in changeless time and space
Komolafe's intensely personal insights provide a striking view into the mind of a man challenging destiny in his search for truth and wisdom in this earthly life. Thinkers and seekers of truth-particularly those that wish to learn about African wisdom-will appreciate how he uses the works of popular early philosophers to explain African wisdom and philosophy and provides answers to questions about man's existence in the universe.
