Currently teaching at the American University of Nigeria, and serving as Associate Researcher at Paris VII University's Laboratory of Social and Political Change (LSCP), Dr. Mahamadou Lamine Sagna taught for more than a decade in the United States, including at Princeton University. His works focus on poverty and globalization. Dr. Mahamadou Lamine Sagna holds a Ph.D. in sociology and Master Degree in Business Administration and Ethnic-psychiatry in French universities. His multidisciplinary background provides him a thoroughness and fluidity to address complex questions that challenge humanity. His research focuses on intersection between philosophy politics, economics and sociology such as economics and social meaning of exchanges. Dr. Sagna is a founder of “Re-Source/Sununet” a Senegalese Diaspora organization. He speaks four languages fluently (French, English, Mandingo, Wollof) and is competent in “Creole” Portuguese and Spanish.

  • “Cornel West has had an extraordinary impact in American thought. This translation will help English-speaking readers to understand his impact beyond our shores.”

    - Kwame. Anthony Appiah
  • “Mahamadou Lamine Sagna rightly emphasizes the importance of Socrates’ philosophy in the thought of Cornel West. More than a Socratic way of thinking, he adds, West manifests a “Socratic posture”,  

    - Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Professor, Columbia University.
  • For years, Mahamadou Lamine Sagna has retreated to solitary spaces where he has dedicated himself to writing a book, only emerging periodically as an unwavering supporter and facilitator of collective engagement in the inventive transformation of our societies.

    - Stéphane Douailler, Professor, Emeritus, Paris University

  • “Certainly, comparison is not right, but by an extraordinary convergence the sociologist Mahamadou Lamine Sagna’s essay on Cornel West illuminates my own writing or filmed biographies: The jazz infected and Blues saturated philosopher, Cornel West, is soaked in Makossa!”

    - Manu Dibango – musicien, Cameroun/France
  • From the chains of slavery to gold chains, from cotton fields to the songs of concrete, from blues to rap, this book by Mamadou Lamine Sagna shows that America&#39;s greatest invention is and will remain popular music.

    - Gael Faye, Author/ Rapper, France – Rwanda
  • A partir d'un portrait fascina de Cornell West Maitre griot des temps modernes, ce livre nous donne de nouvelles pistes pour analyser "l'Ambiguite de la Modernite".

    - Cheikh Hamidou kane – ecrivain, Senegal

  • “In this undulating, poignant and joyful book, the Senegalese/ French sociologist Mahamadou Lamine Sagna shows us how Cornel West illuminates obscurantism and contributes to transmit the torch of knowledge from generation to generation.

    - Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Professor, Harvard University
  • Au moment oú le monde semble desorienté par la violence, Mahamadou Lamine Sagna nous fait réentendre à travers la pensée de Cornel West les chants et les souffles des souffrances et d'espoir qu'ont su exprimer  Bessie Smith,  Sarah Vaughan, Ella Baker  John Coltrane, Miles Davis et Thelonious Monk pour le triomphe de la sagesse, de la justice et de la liberté.  

    - Jean Pierre Ndiaye Journaliste
  • “In this book, Mahamadou Lamine Sagna brings new insights into the writings and reflections of Cornell West, the distinguished American philosopher and public intellectual, showing us how his work matters especially in an age when race and violence have come to define modern life.”

    - Simon Gikandi, Professor, Princeton University

  • Mahamadou Lamine Sagna met à notre disposition, et ce de manière accessible et rigoureuse, la pensée protéiforme et révolutionnaire de Cornel West qui éclaire, de manière inédite et lumineuse, l’Amérique noire moderne. Parce que ce type de publication donne à apprendre, à concevoir la pensée philosophique et spirituelle du monde noir, l’opus littéraire de Mahamadou Lamine Sagna travaille, comme un palimpseste, à éclairer les fondements historiques et sociaux de la renaissance africaine qui prend vie sur les territoires multiples où celle-ci est possible. Mahamadou Lamine Sagna contribue, à travers ses recherches, ses analyses et ses écrits sur l’œuvre de Cornel West, à bâtir le récit unitaire de l’identité noire et de sa culture primordiale à la marche de l’humanité.

    - Amadou Elimane Kane, poète et écrivain
  • "A major achievement of this book is Sagna’s ability to interpret West’s philosophy and activism together as part of a larger meditation on race and suffering and the continuous search for a humanism yet to come.”

    - Simon Gikandi, Professor, Princeton University
