Maat: The Moral Ideal in Ancient Egypt: A Study in Classical African Ethics is an unprecedented work of intellectual archeology and critical interpretation of ancient Egyptian ethical thought from an African-centered standpoint. Engaging Maatian thought as a rich resourse for philosophical reflection and modern moral discourse, Professor Karenga, draws on a wide range of literary, historical and archeological sources to recover and reconstruct this ancient ethical tradition in a dual process on interpretation and transmission.
