Your introduction leads us to believe that Radin's quote was from PRIMITIVE MAN AS PHILOSOPHER. However, the book came out in the late 1920s, so how could he have quoted from a book that J. B. Danquah wrote in 1944? Probably got the titles mixed up?

Further, your minor disagreement does not make a dent in dislodging Radin's main thesis. That is, whether you separate Danquah's presentation of Akan philosphy from Ewe philosophy or not, Radin binded all of the tribes together and considered them primitives. Then, the proceeded to claim that there is an intellectual difference between primitive man as philosopher and the so-called civilized man as philosopher.
