Oral Traditions as Philosophy is a study of the Ugandan poet and cultural critic Okot p'Bitek. In his poems and critical essays, Okot engages with the oral traditions of his people-the songs, dances, funeral dirges, and so forth-seeing them as manifestations of the people's philosophy of life. Imbo's book makes explicit the philosophical questions raised in Okot's work and places them within the wider picture of contemporary African philosophy.
