A NEW BOOK ON SUDANESE ETHICS

ETHICSPosted by Tore Nordenstam Friday, February 25 2011 15:17:20

I wrote the book Sudanese Ethics back in the 1960s. About 40 years later, it was subjected to a critical examination in a workshop organized by the Epistemological Enlightenment Centre in Khartoum. The workshop resulted in a book which came out a couple of years ago. (Cf. an earlier entry on this - here.)

Now that book has been translated into English:

Sudanese Ethics. Critical Revisions on Nordenstam's Model, Epistemological Enlightenment Centre, Khartoum 2010, 261 pages. ISBN: 978-99942-957-2-2.

The contributors come from different fields. Professor Mohamed Abdalla Alnagarabi is a sociologist; Dr. Idris Salim Elhassan got his Ph.D. in the sociology of religion; Dr. Abdalla Ibrahim El Shukri is a philosopher, now associate professor at Omdurman Islamic University; Dr. Khalid Almubarak Mustafa got his Ph.D. in theatre studies and now works as information attaché at the Sudan Embassy in London: Dr. Hydar Ibrahim Ali got his Ph.D. in the philosophy of social sciences; Dr. Suliman Yahya Mohamed has a Ph.D. in folklore and is now a lecturer in folklore at Sudan University for Science and Technology; Dr. Sabri Mohamed Khaliel is a lecturer of philosophy at the University of Khartoum; Dr. Shamseldeen Younos Najmeldeen is a lecturer of criticism and theatre at Sudan University for Science and Technologyand and currently the director of the Sudanese National Theatre.

I do look forward to reading this!
