Witchcraft, Science, and the Paranormal in Contemporary African Philosophy
This essay explores the traditional African philosophical foundations that gave rise to current perspectives on the supernatural within contemporary African philosophical thought. It rejects the comparative Western tenet that while Western ontology is grounded on facts about nature, traditional African ontology is rooted in metaphysical fantasy. Critiquing African ontology outside the contextual framework that gives it structure and meaning will result in unjustifiable biases.
