The answer is that in this concept Dr. Nkrumah draws together strands from the three main traditions that make up the African conscience: the Euro-Christian, the Islamic, and the original African. He characterizes traditional African society as essentially egalitarian, and argues that a new African philosophy must draw its nourishment chiefly from African roots.

But he reviews Western philosophy in some detail to illustrate the thesis that philosophy, however academic, is always trying, explicitly or implicitly, to say something about society. It is this relevance of philosophy to society, and to social and political action in particular, that chiefly interests him. It is a brilliant tour de force , lucid and often witty; the writer is convinced that philosophy is about something and he wants to know what gadfly stung the great thinkers and how their thought grew from the life of their day.

This book marks the first stage of an attempt to hammer out in detail a form of socialism appropriate to non-industrial Africa. Kwame Nkrumah was an influential political leader, socialist theorist, and Pan-Africanist. He was the first president of Ghana after independence and was a key figure in the non-aligned movement.

Nkrumaism sometimes Consciencism is an African socialist political ideology based on the thinking and writing of Kwame Nkrumah. Nkrumaism is a pan-African socialist theory which aims to adapt Marxist—Leninist theory to the social context of the African continent. Nkrumah defined his belief system as "the ideology of a New Africa, independent and absolutely free from imperialism , organized on a continental scale, founded upon the conception of one and united Africa , drawing its strength from modern science and technology and from the traditional African belief that the free development of each is the condition for the free development of all. The values CPP stands for or the guiding principles of Nkrumaism today are those which have guided it throughout its existence. Nkrumaism is a syncretic ideology which blends different sources together while not necessarily borrowing their entire frameworks. In his work, Nkrumah blended different sources from within Africa, the canon of Western philosophy , and black intellectuals in North America and Europe, like Marcus Garvey and George Padmore.
