African Metaphysical Paradigms – Abstract
Since the advent of the most displacing Luso-Anglo-Dutch settler colonialism in the great land of Azania (South Afrjca) 524 years ago (and still counting), the mind of the African Native has been consistently miseducated and arrested by the vestigial chains of the ECC (Euro-Christian Colonialism) using the culture erasing paradigms of epistemic; ontologic and axiologic systems of knowing. These cutting edge and highly glorified intellectual tools have been used to successfully miseducate the African Native about the reality of yena.
What is the philosophy that informs these systems of knowing with respect to reality? Western ontologies are based on the philosophy of materialism that says that the only thing that exists is the material. A material is something that has a molecular structure like an atom; cloth; plant, animal, among others. What about the realities that do not have a molecular structure and yet exist like wind; temperature; dream, culture and others? These do not have a molecular structure and yet they are real!
Enter the thought provoking African Metaphysical Paradigms – African Origin of Genesis; Conceptualisation and Research Metascience of Africography, a lecture to be delivered today afternoon to a combined audience of PhD students organised by the institutions of the University of South Africa and the University of Oxford of England. This paradigm shifting lecture is structured in three segments namely (1) the multi-layered metaphysical cases of African reality of cosmologic genesis; (2) the African ways and onceptualisation of knowing and (3) the exigent need to emancipate the African mind from the colonising methodologies through the research metascience of Africography.
