Providing evidence of the accomplishment and superiority of ancient Egyptian philosophy, this examination of African and comparative philosophy covers science, medicine, textile chemistry, astronomy, geology, zoology, and mathematics. African philosophical systems are traced to a common origin, and groups such as the Dogon of Mali, the Vai of Sierra Leone, and the Yoruba of Nigeria are shown to share modern philosophical and scientific systems with those of ancient Egypt. This substantial offering to the development of the history of Egyptology explores connections between ancient Egypt and modern Africa and provides translations of numerous languages including ancient Egyptian and Semitic.
