Unilag ACC is inviting you to her monthly Principal Investigator (PI) Lecture.

Topic: Reclaiming the self through a re-reading of African Human Relationship (RS Moralities).
Time: February 17, 2021 11:00 AM Nigeria Time.

Abstract

This presentation addresses a puzzling trend in human relationships in contemporary times pictured by the culture of lying. I argue that while lying may seem casual and a daily routine, it is evolving into a culture of lies in human relationships. This culture portends a danger exhibited in the process through which history is rewritten. Drawing insight from Hannah Arendt’s existential phenomenology as developed in The Human Condition, I further argue for a reclaiming of our authentic social and cultural selves that ultimately serve as a basis for self-rediscovery, positive dentity projection, and recognition of Africa and beyond.


Keywords: African human relationship, the culture of lying, self-rediscovery, the self,
