The Search for Universal Responsibility: The cosmovision of Ubuntu and the humanism of Fanon
AbstractIsayvani Naicker explores Africa's cosmovision of Ubuntu, which offers as its starting point that humanity is deeply linked to nature through the life of the community. In order to elaborate the usefulness of Ubuntu as a vision for collective engagement, Naicker examines the writings of postcolonial thinker Frantz Fanon, as well as British ecological and ontological discourses, in order to propose an alternative vision for a collective responsibility to the modern climate and environmental discourse.
