Product Overview

Haitian Vodou breaks away from European and American heuristic models forunderstanding a religio-philosophical system such as Vodou in order to form newapproaches with an African ethos. The contributors to this volume, all Haitians, examine the potentially radical and transformative possibilities of the religiousand philosophical ideologies of Vodou and locate its foundations more clearly withinan African heritage. Essays examine Vodou''s roles in organizing rural resistance;forming political values for the transformation of Haiti; teaching social norms, values, and standards; influencing Haitian culture through art and music; mergingscience with philosophy, both theoretically and in the healing arts; and forming theHaitian "manbo," or priest.
