In this essay the prominent Nigerian scholar Sanya Osha examines the work of Africanist Wim van Binsbergen and its effects on African studies. His work is important for highlighting productive fields... More > of research. Any serious discussion is to lead to other conditions of possibility, parricidal ones included. Furthermore, van Binsbergen by his close reading of V.Y. Mudimbe reveals interesting potentialities for African studies. Our reading of Mudimbe demonstrates how flows, continuities and ruptures are employed as productive forces for the benefity of the deterritorialised and alienated African consciousness. The argument (1) restates the formidable dimensions of Mudimbe’s project and (2) demonstrates how van Binsbergen’s reading of it casts the latter’s project as a possible alternative and reveals the ultimate limits of the former’s oeuvre. Thus travellers through both metropolitan and peripheral cultures describe various destinies that connect with or cross out each other.< Less
