African Origin of Causality: Philosophical Principles of Aetiology

By Mocholoko (Dr), Zulumathabo Zulu

Research Scientist & Director: Madisebo University College

Abstract

The Covid situation has created an extreme sense of urgency with respect to finding a cure. To solve a problem, it is imperative to understand the metaphysical cases of causality. This necessitates a paradigm case with respect to the conceptualisation of the problem. In a discourse that is flush with the dominance of Western ideas, what is the role of indigenous medicine? How does African therapeutics conceptualise about the aetiology of disease? We show herein that indigenous medicine has the potential to broaden and to enrich the aetiological and therapeutic discourse from the treasure chest of its unique insights.
