Myths in African Concept of Historical Reality
AbstractMyths are accounts of the origin of societies and institutions not subject to rationalization but often used by historians and philosophers in their quest to study African history; for it is only thus that we can comprehend the various aspects of the continents history and culture. This paper examines the concept of myth in African history, the critical understanding of African world view based on myths, the Eurocentric argument that African philosophy is non-existent and concludes by showing that African philosophy indeed exist, the place and significance of African philosophy and myths in the reflection of African Historical experience.
