International Symposium on “African Potentials and the Future of Humanity”

内容

Contemporary African societies are confronting numerous problems and difficulties. These are approached on the basis of intellectual modes and structures that have been produced in the Western societies. These approaches tended to devalue problem-solving modes and structures developed within African and other non-Western societies.

African concepts and systems for solving problems have been continually re-created over the course of colonial rule, the Cold War system, and contemporary globalization. We term these approaches “African Potentials,” and seek to elucidate them as remedies for problems not only in contemporary African society, but across human society as a whole.
