Abstract

This is the first chapter of the as yet not translated book by the English philosopher Paul Gilroy. The proposed conception of the Black Atlantic proved to be one of the most effective and influential theories of recent years, dealing with post-colonialism and the black societies of the region. Gilroy deliberated on a wide gamut of issues spanning from the history and theory of ideas, social and political questions, and values to problems associated with art. According to one of his theses, developed in the book, characteristic features of Black Atlantic cultures included the ability to propose a synthesis of cultural phenomena.
