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 resource for philosophic 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 of interpretation and transmission.
