Individualism and community consciousness in contemporary Africa: A complementary reflection

EU Ezedike

Abstract


The 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.
