What is “cancel culture.” A new phrase in popular circulation for less than two years, it has provoked passionate denunciations from observers concerned with civil liberties, especially rights of free speech and expression, and apologetic defenses from opponents who advocate equity and accountability in light of new mores. Still others deny that “cancel culture” exists at all, while many claim never to have heard of it.

The Metaphysics of Culture

Author: 

Cameron, Rod

In this new and persuasively argued study, philosopher Rod Cameron argues that definitive absolute Idealism changes the definition of logic, annuls ethics, and diminishes objective truth. Entitlement to “logic” is due to knowledge of the logos. The logos is religion and reasoning’s common origin. They are thus made compatible. Logic accesses ontology: a metaphysical realm of causation. Logic performs philosophy’s missing function: synthesis. The individual and the nation, Cameron argues, share the same essences. This correlation allows the nation to cater to the individual.

African Values and Social Studies Education

Author: 

Galafa, Beaton, Lecturer in Education and Humanities, Millennium University (Malawi)

This monograph discusses the integration of traditional African values into social studies education in Malawi. It targets the curriculum as a fertile ground for breeding indigenous knowledge due to its relevance in the development of effective moral, ethical, and citizenship skills. The discussion occurs in the context of various studies on the paucity of an indigenous philosophy and the resulting dearth of local knowledge, which expose African education systems to Eurocentric values and ontologies.
