Individualism and community consciousness in contemporary Africa: A complementary reflection
AbstractThe contemporary Africa is witnessing a subtle encroachment of Western styled socio-political cum economic individualism. This indiscriminate assimilation of values has invariably led to the gradual eroding and bastardization of her once cherished communal approach to life. This paper critically examines the foregoing existential realities of our time and recommends a complementary reconstructive treatment of African communitarianism taking into cognizance all the strands of African colonial experience in pursuit of a synthesis.
