You are invited to a webinar lecture: The African Philosophy of Science hosted by The Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC) of The University of Johannesburg (UJ) . You must register beforehand to attend this ground breaking lecture. See Zoom details at the end of the preamble to register for the lecture.

The Preamble

Western historiography postulates a nonexistence of African philosophy as confirmed in philosophical texts like The Philosophy of History (Hegel, 1824) with a corollary that African descendants are not perceived as being capable of contributing to World Civilisation. The impact of the Hegelian hypothesis is observable on philosophical giants like Marx; Engels and Lenin trusted by African leaders and trade unionists in the use of Marxist philosophy in the liberation struggles against the ECC (Euro-Christian Colonialism) and enslavement. Additionally, the adopted ECC school of parochial axiological ideas has added to the phenomenal ide fixe to fixate and to dominate the African mind; heart and soul and to promote the superiority of Western ideas and morality to the detriment of indigenous African ideas and the moral code.

Our research at the independent Madisebo University Research Institute confirms the existence of a rich set of indigenous scientific philosophies and the relevance thereof with respect to peacemaking; sustenance and survivability of the African Motherland. We show, herein, using indigenous examples in {science; mathematics; algorithms; engineering} that indigenous African axioms and philosophical principles were designed by the African ancients to enhance the sustenance and the survival experience of the future generations of the Melanin.
