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

More > font douter du bien-fondé de son existence. Une quête impossible commence pour elle : celle de son identité. Cette recherche la fera passer par des méandres d'existence aussi inattendus pour sa vie bien rangée qu'insoupçonnables dans leurs contrastes. Une vie qui la mènera sur des chemins qu'aucune de ses ambitions n'aurait pu même esquisser et fera d'elle un signe de contradiction : une égérie pour les uns, l'ennemie numéro un à abattre pour les autres. L'assoiffée est la première marche de cette histoire éternelle de David contre Goliath et plus profondément, du cheminement personnel vers l'absolu, celui que l'on tait devant les marées contraires du monde mais celui qui guide invinciblement les âmes sublimes vers leur accomplissement...< Less

A critical study of the Greek tragic vision in the context of other plays taken for the purpose manifests that the conceptualization of tragedy has followed three paradigmatic shifts. The Greeks... More > believed in Divine universe higher than the mundane which impacted upon the latter for good and bad in response to its own moral order and its canons. For example, Sophocles’ Oedipus is fated to commit parricide and incest even before his birth. Euripides’ Medea takes help from the sun-god. Aegeus goes to Delphi to know the reason of his remaining issueless. Medea is a sorceress and invokes the supernatural powers to kill her foes. In other tragic visions like that of Shakespeare's, Neoclassical and Modern tragic vision, it's is hardly so. The application of various perspectives of Aristotle, Aurobindo, Jung, Joseph Campbell, George A. Kelly, Tony Wolfe etc. would help us unfurl the skein tragic tangles in the life we human beings.< Less
