✏Bambui Arts and Culture Book Summary : This book focuses on the traditional arts and culture of Bambui, a kingdom in the western Grassfields of Cameroon. Although a small kingdom in comparison to much bigger kingdoms such as Mankon, Banso, Kom and Bali, the arts and culture of this kingdom have served, and continue to serve, as a way of life, as ritual, as decoration, and as a means of uniting with the sublime since pre-colonial times. However, in presenting the arts and culture of the western Grassfields, scholars have given much attention only to the dominant kingdoms. As such, Bambui, and many other smaller kingdoms have been rendered voiceless. This text brings forth the voice of one of the smallest kingdoms in the western Grassfields through the presentation of its historical arts, and culture, and the changes that have taken, and continue to take place, in the society. It represents primarily an examination of the socio-cultural organisation of the kingdom and the various kinds of art that are used within the different contexts. These milestones are well-illustrated with historical and contemporary images.

✏The Art of the Bambui Kingdom Western Grassfields Cameroon Book Summary : Written as part of the Bambui Museum and Ecotourism Project (BMEP), this stunningly illustrated book introduces readers to the history of the Bambui fondom in the western Grassfields of Cameroon, and presents an exhaustive interpretation of the artistic and cultural heritage of the fondom. Initially conceived as part of an initiative launched in 2001 by Centro Orientamento Educativo, an Italian NGO, aimed at creating museums in some palaces of the Cameroon Grassfields, the book serves as a pilot endeavour towards addressing problems associated with antiques and other cultural assets such as theft and the illegal traffic of objects, the exploitation of poor fondoms by African art dealers and researchers from the West, and the lack of education about the different ways and means the fondoms could employ to transform these resources to the benefit of all. For anyone aspiring to learn about the rich and diverse art of Bambui, in particular, and the western Grassfields as a whole, this book will prove useful, especially since it is written by someone who has lived, and is still living, the Bambui experience.

✏Philosophy in Culture Book Summary : This book explores the symbiotic relationship between philosophy and culture. Every philosophy emerges as a reaction to, or as justification for a particular culture and it is for this reason that philosophy may differ from one culture to another. It argues that philosophy is an essential part of every culture. Philosophy is the means by which every culture provides itself with justification for its values, beliefs and worldview and also serves as a catalyst for progress. Philosophy critically questions and confronts established beliefs, customs, practices, and institutions of a society. As reflective critical thinking, philosophy is linked to a way of life; a form of enquiry intended to guide behaviour; a form of thinking that sharpens and broadens our intellectual horizon, scrutinizes our assumptions, and clarifies the beliefs and values by which we live. Philosophy helps to liberate the individual from the imprisonment of ignorance, prejudice, superstition, narrow-mindedness, and the despotism of custom. Culture constitutes the raw data, the laboratory from which philosophers do their analytic experimentation. Culture is considered as philosophy of the first order activity. The book maintains that any genuine global philosophy must include philosophical traditions from all cultures and regions of the world, as it is by seeking alternative philosophical answers to some of the thorniest problems facing humanity that we are most likely to find more lasting solutions to some global problems. In this commitment to a universal humanity, we cannot afford to depend on solutions from a single culture or from the most influential cultures.
